Tenants should leave but not without leaving a parting gift of snakes, bed bugs or whatever other critters could infest the house.

People such as myself have bugged the hell out of the feds to step in on this issue.

What bullshit from DOJ. Nobody ever said the CDC alters any obligation to pay. And WTF is the point of Trump's CDC order if local courts can ignore it??? Is it just more impotent posturing from pussy Trump?

The CDC order, even if legally valid, does not ban evictions for reasons other than inability to pay rent due to Covid related job loss. Tenants may claim they meet all criteria for the moratorium, but their landlords have the right to make them prove it.
