EUGENE, Ore. – Don’t be surprised if you get a knock on the door this week. The U.S. Census Bureau plans to begin dropping off 2020 census forms to thousands of homes in Oregon after the process was delayed by the pandemic.

The U.S. Census Bureau said field staff have now been trained to follow social distancing and will wear personal protective equipment while in the community. Census workers originally began delivering materials on March 15 but stopped just a few days later as the severity of the health crisis became more apparent.

The Census Bureau said it will deliver 2020 Census invitations and paper questionnaires to the doors of more than 27,000 households in Oregon. Workers will be going door-to-door mainly in areas where the majority of households do not receive mail at their physical address.

People can respond online, by phone or by using the paper form in the packet.
