ST. LOUIS — Evictions in the City of St. Louis will remain on hold through the end of the year.
In August, Judge Rex Burlison put a hold on evictions in the city due to the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. That order has now been extended through Dec. 31.
All evictions are on hold except for commercial evictions, “when the grounds for eviction was established for drug or other activity” or when the tenant, lessee or resident:
A federal eviction moratorium was put in place as part of the CARES Act but expired on July 25, 120 days after it was put in place.
🚨 Pleased to report we’ve been able to get the 22nd Judicial Circuit to extend the #COVID19 eviction moratorium in @STLCityGov through the end of the year, giving us more time to help thousands of people, families stay in their homes using $7.4 million in #CARESAct investments. pic.twitter.com/CTxFieAZKW
