The 2020 Census & COVID-19: It’s Easy to Be Counted Safely!


Your family’s participation in the Census helps determine funding for California communities — including your own. Now more than ever, it is especially important for Los Angeles County families to be counted. And even during social distancing due to COVID-19, it is safe and easy to do from the comfort of your own home. For the first time, you can participate in the 2020 Census online.

In fact, it has never been easier to respond to the Census. All participants can respond by phone, mail or online — without having to leave the house or speak to a Census worker. Whether you participate online, over the phone or by mail, you can take part in the Census.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Census will also extend its deadline:

  • The Census Bureau said on March 20th that it will extend the deadline for counting everyone in the U.S. by two weeks
  • The nonresponse follow-up operation, where enumerators go door-to-door to count people who have not responded, will start in late May instead of mid-May, and it will end Aug. 14th rather than July 31st operations. People can also respond online, by phone, or by mail until Aug. 14th.
  • The bureau will also delay a count of homeless people by one month until the end of April.
