Long Beach Census 2020
With the recent worldwide outbreak of the respiratory disease caused by COVID-19, or the corona virus, the City of Long Beach has taken proactive steps to mitigate the number of cases with protective measures such as closing City Hall to the public, temporarily suspending shutoffs due to lack of payment for water and electricity, and most recently, waiving all street parking tickets until March 30, 2020.
For more information on the city’s response to COVID-19, please visit http://www.longbeach.gov/COVID19 or call 562-570-INFO (4636).
While the City is managing the impact of COVID-19 to our community, I’m reaching out to reassure that getting every resident in Long Beach counted for the 2020 Census still remains a top priority.
Our team has been working with our community partners and City departments to reevaluate our outreach strategies by committing additional resources to digital outreach and engagement. It’s never been easier to respond to the census, whether online, over the phone or by mail – all without having to meet a census taker.
If you haven’t already received a letter in the mail, residents can now complete the census online. Visit www.my2020census.gov to complete the census for you and everyone in your household: children, grandparents, siblings, roommates, or anyone who will be living with you on April 1, 2020.
Recent events have shown us how critical funding is to support hospitals, schools, transportation, and small businesses in order to keep a society working for everyone, especially for our most vulnerable communities. By completing the census, we can take control of our future no matter the circumstance.
Take the census today for your future, your family’s future, and our community’s future.
