COVID-19 UPDATE: GARAGE/YARD SALES

The Porcupine Health Unit is strongly recommending residents avoid hosting or attending yard/garage sales at this time. If you decide to host or attend these events, practice physical distancing, wear a protective face covering, wash your hands often, (including before and after handling money), and disinfect frequently touched items often if you are hosting or disinfect any items if you are purchasing.

What are the precautions if I’m hosting a yard sale?

  • Host the event outdoors and not in your garage.
  • Limit the number of people in your yard. Gatherings of more than 5 people can incur fines.
  • Maintain a 2-metre distance between people.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces often.
  • Wearing a protective mask is strongly recommended.
  • Have hand sanitizers available.
  • Wash your hands before and after handling money.

What are the precautions if I attend yard sales?

  • Wearing a protective mask is strongly recommended.
  • Carry hand sanitizer.
  • Wash your hands before and after handling money.
  • Ensure you disinfect any item you purchased.
