It’s no secret that COVID-19 has had a massive impact globally, and companies such as Golden North Van Lines have stepped up with enhanced safety precautions to ensure that our customers, employees, and everyone else we come into contact with remains as safe as possible. Our teams providing moving services are fully equipped with PPE including masks, gloves, and emergency kits, and we practice social distancing in an attempt to disrupt the spread of the virus. We do all of this because even when times are tough, moving to Alaska may be something that you’re unable to postpone. To help you plan ahead, we’ve put together some ways that you can protect yourself as well as others if you’re in a situation where you need to relocate during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Steps to Take Before Moving to Alaska
While remembering to wash your hands might seem simple, there are other, less-obvious precautions that you should take before moving to Alaska:
- Disinfect your belongings. Use disinfectants to sanitize furniture, tools, appliances, and other items that will be handled by movers or other people. This will stop the spread of germs and make moving to Alaska a lot less stressful.
- Clean while you pack. Wipe down your items before placing them in boxes, and place packed items to one side so that you won’t need to touch them again before the move. This ensures that everything remains sanitized for the next person to load and keeps everyone safe throughout the journey.
- Avoid touching. Try not to have contact with other people, and avoid touching your face while packing your items. Follow the CDC’s recommended guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks, gloves, and taking your temperature to stay on top of any drastic changes. Moving to Alaska should be an exhilarating experience, but only if everyone feels comfortable and safe.
- Report anything amiss. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, keep track of any events and let Golden North Van Lines know of anything that may create an unsafe situation. If you witness any symptoms, consult your doctor for professional medical advice and COVID-19 testing before moving to Alaska.
