The Omicron BA.2 COVID Variant and House Moving

Omicron BA.2 COVID Variant

With a new coronavirus subvariant being recently detected in Australia and health experts monitoring it closely, it is natural to be concerned about your upcoming moves. The Omicron BA.2 Covid variant, which some have nicknamed the “stealth” variant, has been reported in more than 40 countries at the moment. So far, twenty-two Omicron BA.2 Covid variant cases have been reported from Australia. Naturally, people are concerned about the safety protocols in place with regards to removalists and the latest guidelines about relocation and house moving in Australia. Here are a few ways to ensure that you and your family are safe during your moves anywhere in Australia.

Hire A Reliable Mover

While there is not much information present about the effects and severity of the Omicron BA.2 Covid variant, it is still important to maintain the best safety practices. And if handling a move all by yourself seems overwhelming, then you should definitely consider hiring a reliable team of movers for your upcoming move. Professional movers with years of experience will be able to systematically organise your move and take care of all your belongings. Since removalists are considered to be an essential service, they need to ensure that they keep their customers, staff and community safe and minimise the spread of Covid-19.

Maintain Adequate Safety Protocols

Measures such as maintaining social distancing, sanitising surfaces and contact areas, wearing masks are absolutely necessary during times like these. Hence, make it a point to follow all the safety guidelines to ensure that your moving day goes as smoothly as possible. Try to plan out your move so as to avoid crowding in close proximities, especially if you have hired professional movers.

Stay Informed About Latest Guidelines

With the detection of the Omicron BA.2 Covid variant, situations may change rapidly with new guidelines and restrictions imposed based on the severity and number of cases in your state or region. Hence it is important to stay informed about all the latest guidelines issued by local healthcare authorities. You should also make sure that the movers you hire are in compliance with all the safety guidelines and moving practices in place. Although removalists are permitted to move your goods either locally or interstate in Australia, make sure to check the current rules in your state before initiating your move. This will help you avoid complications and problems that may arise during the moving process.

Plan Ahead

Whether you are moving locally or across the country to a different state, planning your move in advance is always a good idea. It helps you understand and map out all the moving pieces and put a place in a place that will structure and streamline your entire moving process. So even if you are moving during the rise of the new Omicron BA.2 Covid variant, a well thought out plan prepared in advance will enable you to have a stress-free moving experience.

Be Ready For Moving Day

All of the above precautions can only be successful if you properly prepare yourselves for your moving day. This includes separating all your essential documents and belongings that you will need to keep on hand during the move. Also, keep a separate bag with essential clothes so that you don’t run into any trouble in case the unpacking or setting up your new home takes more time than expected.

Utilities At Your New Home

Before your move begins, make sure you set up all the utilities at your new home. So that when you move in, your new home is ready with all the essential utilities functioning properly. This will further ease the process of your relocation and make your moving day even more stress-free. 

Since not a lot is known about the Omicron BA.2 Covid variant, the true extent of restrictions is yet to be fully realised. But it is always in our best interest to stay prepared no matter how the situations turn out to be. If you need help connecting with reliable movers in your region, then contact My Moovers today.
