The order was initially enacted in April.
However, the governor has extended it several times since then, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he is considering extending the statewide moratorium on housing evictions that is set to expire on Saturday.
DeSantis signaled the possibility of the extension during a roundtable discussion in Orlando about the coronavirus pandemic Tuesday, saying officials will have “something on that soon.” The moratorium, which was implemented in April, allows people to avoid eviction from their homes amid the virus outbreak.
The governor has previously extended the ban twice, hours before it was set to expire, news outlets reported.
