Census Bureau officials say they will practice social distancing and will wear personal protective gear for safety. Officials say the operation is contactless and follows the most current federal guidelines.
The Census Bureau began hand-delivering census materials on March 15, but suspended all fieldwork on March 18 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
