Is the situation with the Delta variant going to be any better in flu season?
“Days after a national eviction moratorium expired, the Biden administration on Tuesday issued a new, more limited freeze that remains in effect through Oct. 3.
Like the previous order, the two-month moratorium issued Tuesday comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The new ban on evictions covers parts of the United States that are experiencing what the CDC calls “substantial” and “high” spread of the coronavirus.
As of Tuesday afternoon, that’s the vast majority of U.S. counties.
The order, which cites the rise of the delta variant, says: “Without this Order, evictions in these [higher transmission] areas would likely exacerbate the increase in cases. …”
At some point, these people are going to be evicted. The only question is whether it happens sooner or later. This new eviction moratorium might not even last until October.
Note: Of all things, National Review wants the GOP to shut down the Senate over the issue. This is where the True Cons draw the line. Throwing people out on the street is their hill to die on.
