An August executive order extended the CV19 unemployment support... at $300/week?

I'm not seeing this discussed in any of the recent news headlines.
IIRC, there was a lot of FUD around it, at the time.

BUT, apparently it is active, because:
I spoke with a woman a week ago, who said she was happy to not work. She flat out said she made a lot of money during March the to July stay home period. And she said she's now riding the $300/week program.

She occasionally works a gig job (house cleaning) that pays cash under the table.
