LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Tippecanoe County residents who face eviction during the pandemic are getting some extra time.
The CDC has issued a new eviction moratorium, to replace the one that expired on Saturday. This comes as cases continue to rise in Tippecanoe County.
The new eviction moratorium applies to U.S. counties with substantial or high levels of community transmission of COVID-19.
"We are categorized as a high transmission county. Last week we were in the substantial transmission category. So, from the CDC standpoint, yes, we would be considered to be a high transmission county. So, that CDC moratorium would apply," said Dr. Jeremy Adler, Health Officer for Tippecanoe County.
The new moratorium will last for 60 days, until October 3rd.
