With many public amenities closed to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, there has been a demand for more information around public toilet provision and cleaning. Managing Director of the British Toilet Associaton (BTA), Raymond Martin, has been interviewed by over 50 sources from the UK and world news media.
The MD of the British Toilet Association has spoken to various media outlets, providing information about public toilets reopening. He reinforced the continued need for the safety and health of all users and expressed his belief that this could well lead to a transformation in the future provision.
Martin also predicted that a range of new measures may need to be instigated around urinals and washbasins to enforce social distancing and thereby reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission between users, perhaps leading to many public toilets featuring individual cubicles and being upgraded to non-gender specific units.
He also alluded to other measures that might be designed or installed to stop the spread of the disease, ranging from foot-operated or electronic flushes, self-closing seats and integral sanitizing systems are being discussed by their members and could be considered.
The BTA is continuing to encourage the government to urgently recognise the importance of helping local councils to revolutionise the nation’s toilets and washrooms as an urgent matter of public health and to fight not only this current virus – but potentially any future threat of contamination.
