Noon Edition airs on Fridays at noon on WFIU.
Almost all of Indiana is protected by the newest Center for Disease Control eviction moratorium, which targets counties hit the hardest by COVID-19.
The CDC says the trajectory of the pandemic, specifically the spread of the delta variant, justifies eviction moratoriums in counties with substantial or high levels of community transmission of COVID-19. This currently includes all 92 counties in Indiana.
Counties are subject to the moratorium depending on CDC metrics reported daily. Monroe County is labeled a high level of community transmission.
During the pandemic, the CDC extended its original moratorium three times. However, it expired July 31. The new moratorium did not go into effect until Aug. 3, and it will last through Oct. 3. The CDC says it is subject to modification or extension depending on the public health emergency.
This week on Noon Edition, we're talking about the new CDC eviction moratorium and what it means for Hoosier renters this fall.
