The City of Austin announced on its Facebook page that Austin Police Department has interpreted the new executive order from Governor Tim Walz that takes effect Monday May 18th 2020 as allowing for garage sales in the city as long as the gathered group is 10 or less. 

The city cited a guide from the State of Ohio for safely holding yard and garage sales during the COVID-19 pandemic that can be found on their Facebook page at…/garage-sales-and-outdoor-ret.  

The City of Austin asks that everyone please remember to maintain social distancing for your health and the health of others.
