Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order for Movers

On March 23, Gov. Jay Inslee issued the Stay Home, Stay Healthy Proclamation in Washington.

What does this mean for household goods movers?

  • Moving company services provided to relocate a vulnerable individual are also permitted.

Household goods companies providing the essential services described above should take all necessary and reasonable steps to ensure the safety of their workers and customers by following the CDC recommended guidelines, including maintaining social distancing.
