Across New York, garage sales are on hold because of the coronavirus.

NewYorkUpstate reports that this means no yard sales, auctions, garage sales, or neighborhood sales of any kind until are allowed under the law from Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The Glens Falls Chronicle points out the issues with them currently:

“The trouble is people touching objects, coming from different places, congregating. Even if you have one person at a time, they pick up something, put it down. It’s the kind of surface the virus lasts on, then someone else picks it up and brings it to their house, where there are other people who will touch it….The point of the restriction is to get folks not to do that,” he said."

No word if they are allowed to resume on May 15th when the pause is lifted.
