Public Notice - Yard/Garage Sales Prohibited


May 14, 2020 - PUBLIC NOTICE - 


In accordance with the Emergency Order which has been extended by the Province of Ontario to June 2, and on the recommendation of the Grey Bruce Health Unit, the Town of Hanover is prohibiting all yard sales and garage sales until further notice. 

This measure is being taken due to the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 in such settings and in an effort to protect the health and safety of Hanover residents. It is important to remain pro-active and vigilant at this crucial time, to prevent the further spread of this virus.

The Grey Bruce Health Unit has developed a helpful guide should you choose to participate in the sale of second-hand items through another method such as web-based platforms. Be aware that doing so is at the buyer’s and seller’s own risk.

Please refer to the following guide provided by the Grey Bruce Health Unit before participating in the sale or purchase of used items.
