On August 27, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court ended the nationwide eviction moratorium that the Centers for Disease Control issued earlier this month.
Here is the Court’s opinion doing that. The opinion doesn’t say when, or how, the moratorium must be ended. It lists no deadlines and spells out no procedures.
What, then, should you do if you are facing eviction? Here are some resources that may help.
