Yard and Garage Sales Allowed During Pandemic
With all this self isolation you've been cleaning out closets and the garage and now you want to hold a Garage or Yard sale. But is that allowed during the current pandemic? Yakima Health officials say there's nothing specifically that prevents the sales however they're not recommended. Yakima Health District spokeswoman Lilian Bravo says any type of group gathering with people outside of your immediate household is still not recommended. Especially if you are part of the high-risk group.
She says the sales won't be shut down but they urge people to consider the risk. Bravo says while there are no regulations in place surrounding garage sales, health experts say its best to limit the number of people inside the garage. Officials say a person should clean and disinfect hotspots, use face coverings and try to keep customers six feet apart.
