The Lexington Police Department was contacted about yard sales that were being held in Lexington neighborhoods, Saturday morning, despite the coronavirus crisis.
The LPD responded with the post below on Facebook:
“While we realize that everyone has had a lot of time for spring cleaning, a yard sale is not an “Essential Activity” and creates unnecessary and unlawful gatherings of people,” the police post read.”
The police department also provided an internet link to the latest “Home or Work” Executive Order from South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster.
Yard sales are not listed as “nonessential” in the governor’s order. Flea markets are on the list.
