Declaration for the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention's Temporary Halt in Evictions to Prevent Further Spread of Covid-19

 

This declaration is for tenants, lessees, or residents of residential properties who are covered by the CDC's order temporarily halting residential evictions (not including foreclosures on home mortgages) to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. Under the CDC's order you must provide a copy of this declaration to your landlord, owner of the residential property where you live, or other person who has a right to have you evicted or removed from where you live.  Each adult listed on the lease, rental agreement, or housing contract should complete this declaration. Unless the CDC order is extended, changed, or ended, the order prevents you from being evicted or removed from where you are living through December 31, 2020.  You are still required to pay rent and follow all the other terms of your lease and rules of the place where you live.  You may also still be evicted for reasons other than not paying rent or making a housing payment.
