The Circuit Court of Cook County extended the countywide foreclosure moratorium until Aug. 22. 

According to an earlier order amended on Wednesday by Chief Justice Timothy C. Evans, judgments in foreclosure cases, as well as evictions arising from foreclosures, are stayed, though some motions in those cases may still be litigated. 

Evans’s order comes after an extension of the residential eviction moratorium from Gov. J.B. Pritzker last week. The ban on evictions will also be in effect until August 22.
