Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced garage and yard sales are now permitted.
“New York Forward” noted garage and yard sales, as informal events for the sale of used goods by private individuals in residential settings, are permitted to operate so long as sellers ensure that (1) occupancy of the space used for the sale is limited to the number of people who can be safely and appropriate spaced such that each person is at least 6 feet away from others and, in no case, should the space be occupied by more than 10 people at any given time, in accordance with executive order 202.33, as extended; (2) appropriate face coverings must be used by people in areas or situations where they are likely to come within 6 feet of another individual, in accordance with executive order 202.17, as extended; and (3) adequate hand hygiene supplies (e.g. hand sanitizer) and regular cleaning/disinfection protocols are in place.
Sellers may consult the “New York Forward” safety plan template for additional precautions that they should consider implementing during such sales.
