Census Bureau Activates Additional Operations to Ensure Accurate 2020 Census Count
RACCOON VACCINE BAITING JULY 31 – AUGUST 31
Vehicle vaccine distribution will take place from July 31 through August 10.
Fixed wing vaccine distribution will take place from August 10 through August 31.
Helicopter vaccine distribution will take place from August 10 through August 17.
When aerial baiting occurs, aircraft may move within the same area multiple times in a slow manner in order to distribute the bait appropriately. Oral rabies vaccines produce little threat to humans and animals when exposed, but residents are asked to avoid contact with the baits to increase the likelihood of consumption by raccoons. You are also asked to keep dogs confined to your property or on leashes during and for a week after baiting.
NORTH FRANKLIN VFC BINGO IS BACK BEGINNING FRIDAY, JUNE 12!
Census Resumes Front-Door Delivery
Beginning next week, the U.S. Census Bureau will resume the front-door delivery of an invitation to respond to the Census to homes in Washington County that receive U.S. mail at a P.O. Box; this operation is known as Update Leave. Also, the Bureau is resuming the hiring process for Non-response Follow-up field staff.
The Update Leave operation follows the most current federal health and safety guidelines and does not require interaction between a member of a household and a Census Bureau employee. Please know that the health and safety of Census Bureau staff and the public remain of utmost importance. All returning staff will receive safety training to observe social distancing protocols in the COVID-19 environment. For their safety and the safety of the public, the Census Bureau has ordered Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all field staff.
