2020 Census field operations are suspended for two weeks in caution over COVID-19, Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham  said on Wednesday. In the meantime, the agency is strongly encouraging members of the public to go ahead and respond to their 2020 Census questionnaires, which can be done by mail, phone, or internet-connected device like a laptop or smartphone. The 2020 Census formally kicked off roughly a week ago with mailers sent to mailboxes across the U.S. “As of this morning,” the bureau said Wednesday, “more than eleven million households have responded. America is stepping up to shape our future and ensure families and communities are counted.” Visit  census.nc.gov​ for North Carolina-specific census info.
