Public Toilets and COVID-19: Some Guidelines for Providers

There is a growing demand for information regarding public safety and the standards of hygiene which should be expected in public toilets, during the current pandemic.

On 28th June, a letter was jointly issued by Simon Clarke MP (Minister for Regional Growth and Local Government) and Rebecca Pow MP (Minister for the Environment).

Rather surprisingly headed “Public access to tips and toilets” it draws attention to the COVID-19 guidance published by the Government. The text of that guidance for councils on opening public toilets can be found in Author’s Comments.

The British Standards Institution (BSI) will shortly issue a revised edition of “Safe working during the Covid-19 pandemic – General guidelines for organisations” which will include a separate section on toilet provision.

The editor of The Cleanzine (on-line magazine for the cleaning and hygiene industry with readers in 163 countries) has welcomed the opportunity to provide a platform for a public toilet forum; inviting readers across the globe to share their news and ideas. Read more about this initiative in Author’s Comments.
