2020 Census Field Operations Resume in Colorado

Census workers to wear PPE

Denver, CO - The U.S. Census Bureau is resuming 2020 Census field operations in Colorado next week. For the health and safety of Census employees and the public, field staff will observe social distancing protocols and will wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). U.S. Census Bureau field employees will begin dropping off 2020 Census invitation packets at front doors of households in areas that do not receive mail at their homes. This field operation follows current federal health and safety guidelines and does not require interaction between households and Census Bureau employees.

Households that receive the 2020 Census invitation packets are strongly encouraged to respond promptly - using the census ID included in the questionnaire packet. Coloradans can still respond online, by phone or by completing and returning the paper form by mail. Responding online with the Census ID or completing and returning the paper questionnaire helps ensure an accurate count of Colorado communities.

Later this year, the U.S. Census Bureau plans to send census takers to visit Colorado households that have not responded to the 2020 Census to help them complete questionnaires.
