And just last week, she ruled that the Centers for Disease Control Prevention did not have the power to tell landlords that they cannot evict their own tenants, even during a pandemic and a public health crisis. So last week, she put a short term stay in place after the Justice Department appealed. There was a lot of worry, though, that she might lift that stay and really opened the floodgates to a lot of evictions pretty quickly, But late today, she said, no, The stay will be in place longer as theater peel moves forward, and the judge wrote that the CDC quote Or that the CDC demonstrated that quote lifting the national moratorium will exacerbate the significant public health risks.

"I'm Audie Cornish in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Millions of people who have fallen behind on their rent during this pandemic are now in limbo along with their landlords. That's because last week a federal judge threw out a moratorium from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That is stopping many evictions. An appeal has that on hold for now, but that could change very soon for more. We're joined now by NPR's Chris Arnold. Hey, Chris. Hey, Elsa. Okay, so catch us of what is the latest in the standoff? Well, there's a lot happening here all at once, so that the judge who ruled against the CDC moratorium issue to stay because the Justice Department is appealing, But she could lift that really any time today if she wants, which means the floodgates on eviction could open very, very quickly. But we don't know how this is going to play out what we're seeing one early report that the judge could go the other direction. And maybe today is is signaling that to keep this in place longer. An appellate court could step in, so there's many variables, but the stakes are high. Things are moving quickly. Meanwhile, about seven million households are still behind on the rent, according to the Census Bureau, and Congress has passed $50 billion for rental assistance to prevent those people from getting evicted. But that money hasn't reached the vast majority of those people yet, right And I know that you've been talking to some families who are facing eviction. How are they feeling? As as all of this is just playing out? Still? Yeah, So So one person I've been checking in with during the pandemic. He's a single dad has got a 10 year old daughter. They live in Atlanta. Miran Masa died and I spoke with him just today and yesterday and he says he worries about this all the time. Then I put my daughter to bed. I lay down. I can't sleep. I think about these things. I'll get there with me on my heart races, my limbs going on. I've been under distress for for this whole whole year. It's been really tough. And he drives uber for a living. So business was down. He was also afraid to work. Somebody was 59 years old, so he wasn't sure and and you know, he couldn't leave his 10 year old daughter at home alone. So he now always more than $15,000 in back rent that's hanging over his head. This worry about eviction at the same time, Like for many of us, some things were getting better. His his daughter's been struggling with remote school. She's now back in school and seeing friends. Now she's doing excellent. She's gone from the bottom of the class to summer On top of the class. She come from smiling, telling me that she got 100 on all subjects that they But my biggest fear is letting her down. So he's applied for rental assistance money that hasn't come through yet, and the CDC moratorium is protecting him, but he's worried if that goes away, he and his daughter could wind up homeless. Yeah, well, what our landlord saying about all of this? I imagine they hope the courts will just uphold the ruling and throw out this eviction moratorium. Yeah, The case was brought by a realtor group from Alabama. They're not common. They're not making a comment right now. But that meant many landlords say that Look, we're nearing the end of the pandemic. Life's getting more back to normal. They want control of their properties. I talked to Bob Pinegar. He's the head of the National apartment Association. We've been encouraging people to work with the residents, but ultimately 90 cents of every rent dollar that has received has to pay for things like Mortgage property taxes, upkeep of the property. We end up in a situation that is not viable. He says. Look, the focus should be getting that rental assistance money to renters and landlords so that they don't have to evict people. Well, now that things are getting better with the pandemic, I mean, can you just explain why a lot of people out there are still arguing that this moratorium should stay in place like what's the legal argument there? Well, one thing they say is the CDC does have the power to protect the public health and, well, a lot of people have been vaccinated. Others have its and putting people out of their home Spreads Cove it Emily Bent for is writing a brief along with Yale Law School in support of the CDC. The same populations who are the last to be vaccinated. Statistically right now are the very populations who are at risk of addiction. In this moment, we know that communities of color have been vaccinated at lower rates, and with just a little more time. Ah lot of evictions could be prevented. That is NPR's Chris Arnold. Thank you, Chris. Thanks, Elsa. Firefighters across the country where some of the first to be offered the cove in 19 vaccine, But many don't want it in New York and Chicago. Only about half of firefighters have gotten vaccinated. Some places aren't even keeping track. Jacob Margolis, from member station KPCC reports on how one fire department has helped its crew overcome its hesitancy. Back in the fall. Talk of a covert 19 vaccine was ramping up science and technology looked like they could pull off the impossible. A ray of hope in the darkness as a cure appeared to be on the horizon. Not for everyone. Well, when it first came out, I was definitely skeptical. Los Angeles County Firefighter Mickey Juarez wasn't so sure he wanted the vaccine for a number of reasons, the biggest of which was his worry that it could be worse for him than Cove it What is the long sure effects I have pre existing conditions. With auto immune deficiency If you will, um and I was skeptical whether it would affect me adversely or if it would Make my condition worse. He wasn't alone on early survey done by the Los Angeles County Fire Department showed that about 45% of their employees weren't sold on getting the vaccine. Just about around where national trends were At the time. It was a big red flag for L, a county fires medical director Dr Clayton Kazan.

And now you have a chance to ask your questions, and maybe you'll just kind of roll your eyes and roll up your sleeve. So there's a least two things going on there. Right Alison Button. Heim is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. You have to do something very deliberate to get out of it. So you make opting out harder than opting in and you make it this sort of social event where you have to reveal to everybody. What your choices. She says that these choices play into our innate desires to both follow the path of least resistance in the need to be part of an in group, which in this case were people getting the vaccine? And it worked in the end around 70% of Hela counties. Firefighters have gotten the vaccine up from the 55%, who'd originally said they plan to get it. The whole effort was even enough to convince Firefighter Mickey War is to get the shot. Especially when he heard from medical director Clayton Kazan. He's the one that actually changed my mind and put me at ease at the side effects and you know the short term effects. Obviously, there's gonna be some And obviously there were but they were not nothing but I expected less vaccine. Hesitancy is a good thing. Fire seasons ramping up in California and fire agencies. They're.
