Also, the danger is real, and people have to be more careful when they are in direct contact with other people. Thankfully, most moving companies are still working. This means that moving is still a possibility during this outbreak, but you have to know some things first before you even give a call to a moving company. So, in this article, we are going to present you with everything you need to know about moving during the coronavirus pandemic. So, without further ado, let’s begin!
You have to stay safe
The most important thing today is to stay safe. This virus can be dangerous, especially with people with weak immunity, like the elderly. This is why you have to take special precautions to protect yourself and others from a chance of infection.
The first you have to do is wear protective gear. This means that you have to get your hands on protective masks and gloves. Mask is used to protect others from yourself since it is hard to know if you are a carrier of infection. Tests are still not that accurate, and most people who are infected don’t even know that. Most people are asymptomatic. So, get your hands on masks and gloves. Most moving companies won’t even cooperate if you don’t have them with you at all times.
When you’re moving during the coronavirus pandemic you have to listen to your local authorities
Official information is in government hands, and you have to listen to their advice when it comes to moving during the coronavirus pandemic. If in any case, your local authorities say that you need to stay at home, cancel your move, and stay home. Also, don’t forget to keep your distance of 6 feet from other persons.
You have to have a hand sanitizer with you
Wearing a mask and gloves isn’t enough if you want to stay safe. You have to have a hand sanitizer with you at all times. The virus tends to stay on surfaces for quite some time, and it can live on your hands for hours, even if you have gloves. This means that is you touch an object, there is a chance that a mover may catch an infection if he touches an object that you have touched. This is why you have to sanitize your gloves. You have to sanitize objects that you want to move. Spray them with alcohol solution after you have handled them. Also, tell your movers that you expect them to take all necessary precautions before they come to your home.
