Wednesday, April 1 was Census Day, but there is still time to send in your response to the 2020 U.S. Census. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to protect its employees and the general public, the U.S. Census Bureau has extended several census deadlines by at least two weeks. The self-response phase, as well as deadlines for in-person interviews, counting people who live in group settings and mobile questionnaire assistance, were all extended. Read more about these extensions in this article from the Columbia Missourian.
In the latest issue of Good News, we seek to provide you with helpful information about the U.S. Census and how you can make sure you are counted. As you may know, a census, or population count, is conducted in the United States once a decade. The last census was in 2010, which means we have reached another census year in 2020. As the normalcy of our everyday life has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize that it is easy to let important events slip by -- but we cannot neglect our duty to respond. We encourage you to read and share the information contained in this Good News with your family and friends so that we can all be prepared to respond.
