Experts Say the COVID19 pandemic highlights the Need for More Portable Toilets

The COVID-19 pandemic is highlighting the need for more public toilets in communities across the USA, particularly as softening restrictions encourage people to spend more time outside their homes, advocates and experts say.
ARCADIA, Fla. - Sept. 3, 2020 - PRLog -- The health crisis is drawing larger attention to an issue that has been a barrier for racialized, transgenders, and disabled people, as well those dealing with homelessness or poverty for long, the experts say.

Remote access to washrooms was recently raised as a hurdle for the important workers, such as transit and truck drivers who could no longer rely on coffee shops and other businesses once those were ordered closed. As some provinces begin to reopen their economies -- and residents increasingly venture outside -- the demand for restrooms will rise, even though commercial facilities will remain largely off-limits.

The dearth of public toilets could also undermine economic recovery by preventing people from staying out longer and spending more money. Most of the American cities like NJ, New York have installed temporary portable washrooms and handwashing stations to help offset the closure of commercial and civic spaces.

While so-called porta-potties serve an important purpose, they also fulfill the same range of needs as permanent facilities, which are often used for child care, administering medication, and other things. The costs of building and maintaining public toilets have typically been a deterrent for municipalities, but the governments say the current situation shows a need to rethink how much of that responsibility has been relegated to private business.

For some advocates whose calls for more public portable toilets vastly predate the COVID, the attention recently given to the issue is an encouraging first step.

As they say, a crisis can also be an opportunity, so now is the time for all of us to root for a network of portable toilets that include running water and soap for handwashing.
