Field and office staff will be provided personal protective equipment and sanitizer to ensure safety during work shifts.

In order to protect the health and safety of our workforce and the public, the Census Bureau has taken the following safety measures prior to resuming field operations:

  • Secured Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and sanitizer for field and office staff;
  • Conducted deep cleaning of office workspaces;
  • Developed mandatory COVID-19 training (outlining steps for staying safe while performing field duties);
  • Practicing social distancing, including shift work, in offices;
  • Maximizing telework, when possible.

2020 Census field operations have resumed in select locations across the nation.

The phased return-to-work plan adheres to guidance from the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Personnel Management as well as federal, state and local authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
