Coronavirus is slowing down search for census workers, could make it harder to count Americans

The lines were about 50 deep at the census job fair U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford hosted recently in his Nevada district.

In St. Louis, about 125 job seekers, including retirees, showed up last month for the recruitment fair Rep. Lacy Clay of Missouri held at a historically black college.

Dozens filled out applications to be a census worker in Selma, Alabama, where U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell set up job stations at a community college.
