Moving Boxes
The pandemic has caused families to move, according to a report from United Van Lines.

Connecticut comes in as the third highest state to see an influx of new residents, according to a report from United Van Lines.

People across the country have been moving to states with lower COVID-19 numbers, during the pandemic.

The moving company interviewed customers and learned that about 20 percent of all people who moved into Connecticut between March and August did so because of COVID-19 numbers in their state.

New York was number 2 on the list of states that lost residents. The report found that nearly 16 percent of the moves out of New York were attributed to the virus.
