ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Garage sales have been approved to resume, just in time for summer.

News10NBC’s Brennan Somers has been trying to get an answer for weeks from state and local officials on the summer tradition.

We just received a new statement from Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul. Hochul says, with new guidance from the governor, garage sales can go on.

“I know that many people rely on garage sales and yard sales to sell unwanted items or to shop for good finds for their families,” Hochul said.

However, there will be some limitations:

  • There must be less than 10 people present
  • Masks need to be worn
  • People will still need to socially distance

“While approval to hold sales with less than 10 people in a space and where people are socially distanced and wearing masks is good news, we are relying on our residents to make sure they follow the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their customers,” Hochul said.
