Proposed Project TEMPORARY HALT IN RESIDENTIAL EVICTIONS TO PREVENT THE FURTHER SPREAD OF COVID–19—Extension—National Center for Emerging Zoonotic and Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Recent CDC actions in response to COVID included a temporary eviction moratorium published on September 4, 2020 that was effective through December 31, 2020. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 extended the Order until January 31, 2021. On January 29, 2021, the CDC Director renewed the Order through March 31, 2021. The Order has now been further extended until June 30, 2021. As of March 25, 2021, over 29,700,000 cases of COVID have been identified in the United States, with new cases reported daily, and over 540,000 deaths due to the disease. To qualify for the Order’s protections, tenants, lessees, or residents of residential properties must provide a copy of the Declaration to the landlord, owner of the residential property, or other person who has a right to have the individual evicted or removed. The Declaration provides notification and attestation on behalf of the submitting party that they have met the required criteria to keep from being evicted; it should be given to the landlord, owner of the residential property, or other person who has a right to have the individual evicted or removed. The information collected will be limited to the signature of the tenant, lessee, or resident. The information will not be collected by CDC. As stated in the Supporting Statement for OMB Control Number 0920–1303, under the request for an Emergency Clearance, OIRA has waived the 60-day comment period requirement. However, because this collection is exceeding 60 days, CDC is seeking additional notice and comment. Specifically, CDC is soliciting comments on the following aspects of the information collection form: 1. Did you find the form was accessible on mobile devices, such as tablets and telephones? 2. Was the from easy to read and understand? 3. Was the form sufficiently understandable by those using it, and how is the form being used? 4. Are there additional accessibility measures CDC should consider? There will be no anticipated costs to respondents other than their time. Estimated burden for residents who make a maximum of $99,000 annually is 2,916,667 hours. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Respondent Tenants, Lessees, or Residents. Total ........................
