Tips for hosting a sale during the pandemic:

  • If possible, put sale items outside instead of inside a garage.
  • Set up tables and chairs six feet apart.
  • Space and display items in a way that allows room for shoppers to browse at a distance from each other.
  • Place posters on your property encouraging social distancing.
  • Use tape to form a flow for customers to follow throughout the sale. 
  • Ask customers to stand in a spaced out line during high traffic times. 
  • Routinely clean and sanitize tables, chairs, and the items that are being sold. 
  • Wear a mask whenever shoppers are present.
  • Have hand sanitizer available and use it between customers and after handling money.
