Participating in a 2020 Census interview presents “a low risk of transmission” of Covid-19, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Census Bureau said in a joint statement on the CDC website Monday.
Census takers are highly trained in CDC recommendations to keep the risk low, the statement said, and follow these protocols rigorously.
When participating in a census interview, census takers will wear a mask, keep a six-foot physical distance, have good hand hygiene, and will do the interview outside the home if possible.
The CDC said it is ready to support the work of the Census Bureau and staff and provide technical assistance to make sure that staff and household members stay safe and healthy.
