Eviction moratorium excludes Door and Kewaunee counties

Your landlord might be able to evict you if you are behind on rent despite the Centers for Disease Control extending the moratorium earlier this week.


Under the order signed by CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, landlords cannot evict people behind on their rent or other housing payments in U.S. counties experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission of COVID-19.


As of Thursday morning, Door and Kewaunee counties were still listed in the moderate category. That means the eviction moratorium does not apply to those counties as of right now. Nearby Brown, Marinette, and Manitowoc counties are listed in the substantial transmission level while Sheboygan, Calumet, and Oconto counties are featuring high transmission rates.


The state does have an emergency rental assistance program in place for people who have been negatively affected by COVID-19, whether that means contracting the virus or increased costs of keeping your kids at home. It can cover up to 12 months in back rent and three to four months into the future. Kate Markwardt from Lakeshore CAP says they have seen an uptick in applications this week as uncertainty rises.

Markwardt says it is unclear what will happen or who will be notified if Door and Kewaunee counties slip into the higher levels of community transmission. She encourages people to apply if they are unsure by stopping by their offices or logging onto their website.
