A message from the folks at 2020 Census:
We are all experiencing these unprecedented times with the spread of COVID19. Things are changing rapidly every day and we are coping with uncertain circumstances. Census as you probably know has stopped field operations until April 1st. We have halted the hiring process at this time, but are still taking applications online. 2020census.gov/jobs or 1-855-562-2020.

April 1st 2020 is still Census Day.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Right now the most important thing we can do is reach out through social media: to partners, employees, friends, constituents to motivate them to self-respond at 2020 Census -- online or by phone
Materials we are providing:
2020 CENSUS VIRTUAL MEDIA TOOLKIT:
This digital toolkit (click here) can help you reach residents, constituents, family and friends by providing tools to assist with social media and texting efforts., which includes sample messages and blurbs, links, challenges, being provided mostly in English. Our staff worked hard to prepare the toolkit with limited resources and technology during this difficult time. We can certainly use your help in translating the material into the language spoken by your community
