COVID-19: Daily Update on Changes to Programs and Services, July 22, 2020

For immediate release: July 22, 2020 - 4:01pm
FI20-1421

The City is doing its part to flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases in Saskatoon. We have made many staffing and service changes so our employees can safely deliver services to residents and to make sure people remain physically apart from one another. This way we can all work together by staying apart – it will protect the health of essential frontline healthcare staff, core service workers and first-responders. These actions in turn protect all of us. 

Garage and yard sales now permitted 

Garage and yard sales are once again permitted in accordance with the guidelines and restrictions as required by the Chief Medical Health Officer and regulated under the Government of Saskatchewan’s Re-open Saskatchewan plan. 

When hosting a garage or yard sale you must be mindful of the current public health order and ensure that physical distancing can be maintained. Group events are not yet permitted and the sale must be kept to a single household. Take precautions by sanitizing your hands after handling goods and cash, and posting signs at your sale to encourage physical distancing. 

Garage and yard sales can be conducted by a resident of any residential or institutionally zoned property. No more than four sales can be conducted on one site in a calendar year, and any one sale cannot last more than three consecutive days. A permit is not required to operate a garage or yard sale.
