Because of COVID-19, the procedures for field work will be a little different. All employees will carry their official badge, but will be armed with PPE. There will be no in-home visits and all inquiries will be contactless.
Questionnaires will be dropped on the porch at addresses that have not completed the survey online. There should be no door knocking or interaction.
