Eviction Order FAQs from the CDC - October 16, 2020

Jodie Clark McDougal

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and related agencies (HHS/HUD/DOJ) issued certain non-binding guidance, in the form of a series of FAQs, regarding the CDC Order temporarily halting certain residential nonpayment evictions.


It is important to remember that this is non-binding guidance and that the Iowa Supreme Court’s Implementation Order is still in effect and must be followed by Iowa landlords. If, in light of this CDC guidance, the Iowa Supreme Court issues an updated Implementation Order, I will provide an update.
