It is finally starting to feel like spring in Cochrane and this is usually the time of year we see garage sales popping up across town.

While you may be itching to do some de-cluttering and plan a garage sale of your own, you will have to wait for now.

Provincial authorities, as well as the Town of Cochrane, say that the touching of sale items, exchange of money and gathering in garages all contribute to the potential spread COVID -19.

Neighbourhood gatherings and the Cochrane Farmers’ Market among others have also come to a pause, as strict restrictions on public gatherings and recommendations for physical distancing continue to be in place.

The Town of Cochrane made the decision to cancel all Cochrane events until July 2.
