Federal workers from the Centers for Disease Control will be going door to door in two Northern Virginia cities to conduct a survey of needs related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Manassas and Manassas Park have large Hispanic populations and on a per-capita basis have been some of the hardest-hit jurisdictions in the country with COVID-19 cases.

Beginning Monday, CDC workers will be going door to door in the area with a 30-question survey conducted in Spanish.

The city of Manassas says the survey will collect information designed to help local health officials understand what resources are needed in the community.

The survey is voluntary and will not collect information that can be used to identify individuals.
