On August 3rd, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a new order [PDF] that offers protection from evictions for nonpayment of rent for tenants who meet certain qualifications. This order is active in counties with "heightened levels of community transmission" and is intended to stop the spread of COVID-19, including the new Delta variant. The order is effective through October 3rd, 2021, and has the potential to be revised or extended past this date.

You can read the new Order in its entirety on the CDC's website, and find more information about this order and other eviction protections on the Eviction page of our COVID-19 and Texas Law guide.
