As we unpacked (pun intended) in part 2 of this series, “You’ll Stress Less About Moving Day When Buehler’s Focused on Moving Safety”, Buehler has your family’s back when it comes to moving your family safely.
So here is one last safety tip!
Educate yourself and your family members about travel safety.
Our President and GM, Scott Luedke, suggests,
“We’ll provide you with information about social distancing education and documentation about moving as an essential service.”
Beyond that, there is no need to recreate the wheel; CDC is very clear about this!
Research The Travel Route
When it comes to the final destination, is Covid-19 spreading, and at what rate?
What about the cities and towns your family will need to travel through to arrive at your final destination?
Check the local health department websites for all these towns to ensure they have the most accurate information.
Observe Social Distancing Best Practices
Will your family be in close contact with others during the trip?
Risk of exposure increases in crowded settings, as well as tight spaces with limited airflow.
When possible, avoid traveling during peak times. Also, consider driving in a family car vs. taking a bus, train, or plane.
Bring plenty of food and water to reduce the need to stop along the way.
Older adults and people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions (such as heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes), should take extra precautions.
