‘We’re just kicking the can down the road.’ Landlord expects foreclosures after CDC halts evictions

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A local landlord said there will likely be foreclosures down the road unless unemployed renters get monetary help to pay rent.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has halted evictions for people who can’t pay rent to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Since property owners are left paying mortgages, experts are forecasting a waterfall of evictions, and an influx of foreclosures. “We’re just kicking the can down the road, just pushing the issue that it doesn’t negate the rental lost income, the resident is still responsible for that after the moratorium ends, and in a lot of situations they’re going to be a worse state financially with all those back fees and things like that.”

Mason Road Junior Public School to reopen Tuesday following COVID-19 outbreak

Mason Road Junior Public School will reopen on Tuesday, a week after it was shut down over an outbreak of COVID-19.

The Toronto District School Board announced Sunday that the school is able to reopen as Toronto Public Health has finished its investigation.

More than 170 students and staff at the Scarborough elementary school were ordered to stay home and isolate last week while the school shut its doors after four positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed by the school board, including one student and three staff.

TDSB spokesman Ryan Bird said Mason Road school was ordered to close so Toronto Public Health could investigate.

The outbreak was declared right after the city’s first outbreak of COVID-19 at Glen Park Public School more than a week ago.

Two other schools in Ontario, Monsignor Paul Baxter elementary school in Ottawa and Fellowes High School in Pembroke, closed after confirmed outbreaks.
