Smooth Moove Follows CDC Guidelines for Smooth and Healthy Moves During the Pandemic
We Are Fully Operational During the Pandemic!
We will be continuing our essential operations as we fully comply with the CDC Guidelines for moving during the pandemic that are outlined in detail below. As we have all learned in recent weeks, our seniors and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart disease, lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Accordingly, we are in full compliance with the CDC Guidelines for moving by wearing gloves, face masks, and making use of specialized sanitizing equipment.
Our Senior Moving services can better help the physical and emotional aspects of relocation for older adults. This may include assisting Atlanta seniors to relocate to a new home, helping a senior downsize from a home to a condo, or assisting you in moving more safely and carefully to a retirement community. In all cases, we will be following the CDC Guidelines for Moving during this Pandemic.
For your reference, we have outlined below a complete summary of the CDC Guidelines:
- Know how it spreads
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to be spreading form person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.
- Everyone Should Follow CDC Guidelines for Moving During Pandemic
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- It’s especially important to wash
- Before eating or preparing food
- Before touching your face
- After using the restroom
- After leaving a public place
- After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
- After handling your cloth face covering
- After changing a diaper
- After caring for someone sick
- After touching animals or pets
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact
Inside your home: Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is sick and other household members.
Outside your home: Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
Stay at least 6 feet apart from other people.
Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
Everyone should wear a cloth face cover or mask in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker. Currently, surgical masks and N95 respirators are critical supplies that should be reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders.
- Cover coughs and sneezes ( CDC Guidelines for Moving During Pandemic )
Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Clean and disinfect
Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
- Monitor Your Health Daily
Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
Especially important if you are running errands, going into the office or workplace, and in settings where it may be difficult to keep a physical distance of 6 feet.
Take your temperature if symptoms develop.
Don’t take your temperature within 30 minutes of exercising or after taking medications that could lower your temperature, like acetaminophen.
Moving is never easy, especially if you’re moving from a home you’ve lived in for most of your life and relocating to a neighborhood or retirement community where you don’t know anyone. As an older adult, this transition is even more challenging. Our moving staff are there to support and assist, and they are efficient and careful. All our staff has been fully trained on the latest CDC Guidelines for Moving Seniors during the pandemic and we are a fully licensed and insured moving company.
