Moving rosemary indoors

To move my rosemary plant indoors, do I simply dig it up and put it into a pot with indoor potting soil after checking it over for pests? We’ve already had a couple of nighttime freezes here in Colorado and I’ve covered it with a large pot to protect it. I know I’ll need to acclimate it gradually. Any other suggestions?? THANKS!
