Spring is in full swing here in Cochrane and this is usually the time of year we see garage sales popping up across town.

The town issued a statement back in April cancelling seasonal events that pose a potential threat to the spread of Covid-19.

However with the lifting of some restrictions, and the phased relaunch of the province, many Cochrane residents are wondering if the stance has changed on garage sales.

While you may be itching to do some spring de-cluttering or browse those neighbourhood sales, you will have to hold out.

The stance on garage sales hasn't changed. Provincial authorities, as well as the Town of Cochrane, continue to stand by their reasoning that the touching of sale items, exchange of money and gathering in garages all contribute to the potential spread of COVID -19.
