Garage Sale Advertising Program

Garage sales are allowed in Spruce Grove, however Spruce Grove's Emergency Management Agency recommends against holding or attending them.

With the current public health orders in place it would be difficult to ensure everyone’s safety as yard sales can encourage public gatherings without room for appropriate physical distancing. Additionally, since garage sales typically deal with cash and item handling, sanitizer use and disinfecting protocols cannot be easily monitored.

To review the Government of Alberta's public health orders and other important information, please visit www.alberta.ca/covid.

Please remember that there is still a risk of infection of the COVID-19 virus, and residents are urged to practice caution and take appropriate measures to minimize their risk of exposure in public settings.

We appreciate your continued support and cooperation as we all work together to keep our community safe and well.
