Moving Tips & Safety
According to Move.org, there are many factors to consider when deciding to relocate at this time. It’s important to gain as much information as possible about both where you’re moving from and where you’re moving to. The CDC has stated that, if traveling, it’s important to consider these factors:
- Is there a coronavirus outbreak where you’re going?
- Will you or your travel companion(s) be in close contact with others during your move?
- Are you or your travel companion(s) more likely to get severe illness if you get COVID-19? (Are you immunocompromised?)
- Do you have a plan for taking time off from work or school, in case you are told to stay home for 14 days for self-monitoring or if you get sick?
- Do you live with someone who is older or has a serious, chronic medical condition?
Answering these questions will help you to determine the safest course of action based on your moving situation. In addition, it’s important to consult the health department and your moving company for updated information.
Your Home Is More Important Than Ever
No matter when you decide to move, there are infinite factors to consider regarding your new home. Now more than ever, your home should be a sanctuary—somewhere you feel is safe and where you can be completely at ease.
