The Eastern Ontario Health Unit has confirmed that as of Friday, June 12, yard sales are permitted in the City of Cornwall.

Provincial emergency orders apply: homeowners must ensure that no more than 10 people attend a yard sale at any one time.

Residents who choose to hold or shop at a yard sale are strongly encouraged to:

  • Sanitize their hands often,
  • Avoid touching surfaces and items as much as possible,
  • Wear a mask, and
  • Stay home if they are feeling unwell.

The City of Cornwall reminds residents that only two yard sales per year are permitted.
