The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had put up an eviction moratorium last September in light of the coronavirus.  The government ban expired on the 31st of July. Due to the U.S. Congress's failure to vote on the legislation extending the moratorium on evictions, millions of tenants risk being evicted from their homes. In June, the Supreme Court signaled that the moratorium wouldn’t be extended beyond the end of July without congressional action, and the lawmakers failed to pass a bill in due time to extend the moratorium even a few months. The Republican members objected to the lawmaking process to extend the moratorium.
However, Eviction moratoriums will remain in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Washington DC until they expire later this year.
