Staying home because of the coronavirus threat? It might be a good time to fill out the Census online.

For the first time ever, the 2020 Census can be completed online. Residents should be receiving postcards in the mail this week with instructions.

Rev. David Lima and Sandy Quadros Bowles from the New Bedford Complete Count Committee 2020 visited with Jim Phillips this week to discuss the Census, why it's important to fill out, and job opportunities that pay up to $22 an hour.

Their interview can be heard here:
