Keep your eyes out for census takers in your neighborhood. Census takers have begun visiting homes of people that haven't yet responded to the 2020 Census.

They will be wearing masks and following local public health guidelines when they visit your home. According to 2020Census.gov, all census takers complete a virtual COVID-19 training on social distancing and other health and safety protocols before beginning their work in neighborhoods.

Census takers are hired from your area, and their goal is to help you and everyone in your home be counted in the 2020 Census. If the census taker who visits your home does not speak your language, you may request a return visit from a census taker who does speak your language. Census takers work between 9am and 9pm, including weekends. If no one is home when the census taker visits, the census taker will leave a notice of their visit with information about how to respond online, by phone or by mail.
