1. Information for Sellers

  • Group sizes cannot exceed what is allowable in the current Public Health Order.
  • Do not host an event if you are feeling sick/unwell.
  • Wash hands often and consider providing an alcohol-based Health Canada approved (DIN or NPN) hand sanitizer for all attendees.
  • Maintain a physical distance of two metres between individuals. Signs that promote two-metre physical distancing between attendees should be posted.
  • Sales should be held outdoors or, at a minimum, in a well-ventilated area such as a garage with opened doors and windows.
  • Sales are to be hosted by a single family. Group events are not permitted at this time, including with extended households.

  • Minimize physical contact with attendees.
  • Do not provide food and beverages – complimentary or for sale.
  • For cash transactions, ensure hands are washed or sanitized after handling money. Accept cashless payment if possible.
  • Where the seller agrees with the buyer to have an item picked up (i.e. larger items needing a larger vehicle for transport) outside the hours of the garage sale, the same precautions are to be taken at the time of the pickup.
