Moving During A Global Pandemic? The Troubling Truth!


Moving During The Pandemic

Moving may be the last thing on your mind with the pandemic that is going on right now but if it is, then this article may help ease any questions you may have.

The New York Times recently publicized this article “Moving During COVID Pandemic.” People are certainly reevaluating things these days. If moving is a consideration or even a decision, we encourage you to read this article and consider the following:

  • 1. Use a licensed and insured moving company.
  • 2. All employees must wear masks and gloves during the moving process.
  • 3. Pack the smaller, more frequently used items yourself.

“I chose to pack my own belongings and hire a moving company to do the heavy lifting. My movers wore masks throughout the process. And, the company required that I have a hand-washing station available on both ends of the move. Everyone practiced social distancing.”

Pandemic and Moving

Is COVID Making People Move?

“Chances are, you might want to abandon crowded cities. It’s now obvious, if it weren’t before, that staying in big cities can be bad for your health. The density of social contact in urban areas—home to almost 60 percent of the global population—makes them Petri dishes for spreading of contagious diseases.

The Covid-19 “attack rate” in New York City was five times the national average. (Similarly, depopulated Eastern European countries have far lower fatality rates from Covid-19 than more densely populated Western Europe.)”
