Every year, WPENA coordinates a neighborhood-wide yard sale event in conjunction with Denver Days.¬†This event offers WPENA members the opportunity to have their yard sale included on a searchable listing page with addresses and maps. In anticipation of the 2020 Yard Sale, Washington Park East Neighborhood Association (WPENA) consulted Governor Polis’ Executive Order for Safer at Home, the Colorado Dept. of Public Health and Environment, and the Covid-19 information page from the City and County of Denver. Based on the requirements and recommendations in these sources, WPENA feels that there is too much risk that these will not be able to be followed at the annual yard sale. Aside from social distancing and facial coverings, such recommendations as the use of contactless payment (no cash), gloves, hand sanitizer, special hours for people who are at risk of severe illness from Covid-19 may be difficult to implement, possibly resulting in an increased risk of spreading Covid-19. WPENA looks forward to re-instituting the yard sale in 2021.
