    CDC Director will Extend the Eviction Moratorium

    Statement from CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, MD, MPH, on Extending the Eviction Moratorium | site |



    (Information contained in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] press release dated: January 20, 2021)

    As a protective public health measure, I will extend the current order temporarily halting residential evictions until at least March 31, 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historic threat to our nation’s health. It has also triggered a housing affordability crisis that disproportionately affects some communities.

    Despite extensive mitigation efforts, COVID-19 continues to spread in America at a concerning pace. We must act to get cases down and keep people in their homes and out of congregate settings — like shelters — where COVID-19 can take an even stronger foothold.

  • CDC Expands Negative COVID-19 Test Requirement to All Air Passengers Entering the United States

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Expands Negative COVID-19 Test Requirement to All Air Passengers Entering the United States | site |


    (Information contained in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] press release: January 12, 2021) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expanding the requirement for a negative COVID-19 test to all air passengers entering the United States. Testing before and after travel is a critical layer to slow the introduction and spread of COVID-19. This strategy is consistent with the current phase of the pandemic and more efficiently protects the health of Americans. Variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus continue to emerge in countries around the world, and there is evidence of increased transmissibility of some of these variants. With the US already in surge status, the testing requirement for air passengers will help slow the spread of the virus as we work to vaccinate the American public. Before departu...

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to Require Negative COVID-19 Test for Air Travelers from the United Kingdom to the U.S. | site |




    (Information contained in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] press release dated: December 24, 2020)

    Today, President Trump is taking another step to protect the health of the American people by requiring air passengers arriving from the United Kingdom (U.K.) to test negative, via PCR or Antigen test, no more than 72 hours before departure from the U.K. to the United States.

    The public health authorities in the United Kingdom recently announced the discovery of a new variant of SARS-CoV-2.

    (Information contained in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] press release media statement: December 23, 2020)



    Media Statement from CDC Director Robert R. Redfield on Vaccine Milestone


    The United States achieved an early but important milestone today – jurisdictions have now reported that more than 1 million people have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine since administration began 10 days ago. With cases of COVID-19 continuing to surge nationwide, this achievement comes at a critical time and will help to protect those on the frontlines – our healthcare providers treating COVID-19 patients – as well as our most vulnerable: elder individuals living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. While we celebrate this historic milestone, we also acknowledge the...

    CDC says Expanded Prevention Efforts Needed


    (Information contained in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] press release: December 17, 2020) Over 81,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12-month period, according to recent provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While overdose deaths were already increasing in the months preceding the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the latest numbers suggest an acceleration of overdose deaths during the pandemic. “The disruption to daily life due to the COVID-19 pandemic has hit those with substance use disorder hard,” said CDC Director Robert Redfield, M.D. “As we continue the fight to end this pandemic, it’s import...
