President Joe Biden on Sunday "raised the prospect" of a new, 30-day eviction moratorium focused on U.S. counties with high or substantial COVID-19 case rates, the White House said Monday. An eviction ban expired at midnight Saturday. The White House said that to date, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky and her team haven't been able to find legal authority for a new, targeted eviction moratorium. Biden is now asking his policy and other teams to reexamine whether there are other authorities to take more actions to stop evictions, the White House said. The president is also calling on states to extend or put in place eviction moratoriums for at least the next two months.
