Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is putting a limited extension on the federal eviction moratorium. It applies to counties with a “substantial” or “high” amount of COVID spread. Most Chicago area counties are in the “substantial” range.
The new order will expire Oct. 3.

This comes as Democrats are pushing cities and states to distribute more of the $46 billion in rental assistance that Congress has already approved.
