COVID-19 Updates

Based on continuing assessments, guidance from federal, state and local health authorities, the U.S. Census Bureau is suspending 2020 Census field operations until more updates are available. The Census Bureau is taking this step to help protect the health and safety of the American public, Census Bureau employees, and everyone who will go through the hiring process for temporary census taker positions.

2020 Census field offices are open and operating with reduced staff. If you are trying to contact us via telephone, we will do our best to take your call.

The Census Bureau continues to evaluate all 2020 Census field operations, and will communicate any further updates as soon as possible.

Attention Potential Applicants:

The U.S. Census Bureau continues to accept applications for temporary part-time positions with the 2020 Census. Although many job offers have been made, there is still an opportunity for jobs to be offered.

Attention Applicants Who Have Been Offered a Job:

You are still selected for the position. However, all fingerprinting operations are suspended effective March 18, 2020. If you had an appointment, it has been cancelled. This is a temporary suspension and we ask that you bear with us as we work to keep you and the general public safe and healthy. Please check the fingerprint website for further updates.

In addition, we are working diligently to provide additional information on how and when you will be trained. In some cases, training will be delayed in order to maintain public safety. Training will include social distancing measures. Please be patient as the training details are finalized. We will provide more information as it becomes available.
