The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) moratorium on certain evictions is extended until June 30, 2021. You can still be evicted for some reasons other than nonpayment of rent. In order to qualify for protection you must fill out a declaration form and provide it to your landlord. Click here for more information about the CDC moratorium.
