Beginning the week of May 4, 2020 Census field operations in Idaho will be resuming. The health and safety of the public and our employees remains a top priority.
As operations resume in Idaho we are focusing on areas that do not receive mail at their home residence. These include homes that only receive mail at a PO Box which includes Dover.
In keeping with COVID-19 social distancing best practices, Census employees will be wearing face masks and gloves while dropping off packets to residences. Employees have also been instructed to not knock or ring the doorbell, but instead will simply leave the packet on the doorstep of the residence. Each packet contains:
- A paper Census questionnaire with Census ID
- Census phone number to take the Census with a live person over the phone
- My2020census.gov web address to respond to the Census online
