This week the Centers for Disease Control announced a moratorium on evictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) says he is concerned about some provisions of the order.

He says under the rule, tenants won’t be evicted this year, but they will need to come up with eight months of rent in January.

Brown is pushing Congress to renew the weekly $600 unemployment benefit that expired in July, and to approve emergency assistance so people can stay in their homes.

Powassan triggers symptoms including fever, headache and vomiting. There also can be seizures and brain swelling, and it’s potentially fatal.
