Dr. Rochelle Walensky, CDC Director, signed an order that extends the eviction moratorium until October 3, 2021. The Delta Variant has led to a higher transmission in the US putting more residents at risk. Communities with substantial or high levels of community transmission are included in the moratorium. Philadelphia is included. However, not everyone is protected by this.
The CDC Moratorium protects you only if:
1. You are being evicted for nonpayment of rent only.
2. AND you signed the CDC Eviction Protection Declaration and gave it to your landlord. Keep a copy for yourself.
