With Ebola entering the US, it is even more urgent to have public restrooms for handwashing and sanitary urination, defecation, and removal of tampons.
The CDC says handwashing is the best way to prevent spread of many diseases, including norovirus, flu, colds, TB, hepatitis A, SARS, MERS, and ebola. All of these diseases can be spread by "casual" contact such as coughing and sneezing. Homeless people, tourists, and people with lots of kids can't always afford to go to a restaurant to use the bathroom.
Cleanliness should not only be for rich people!
There are only a couple public toilets in our nation's capital, and in East LA and East Las Vegas most fast-food restaurants and convenience stores have closed their restrooms even to paying customers!
We request the US Congress and the city government of the District of Columbia to provide more public toilets.
The More Public Toilets for the District of Columbia petition to US Congress and the Mayor and City Council of the District of Columbia was written by garyjminter and is in the category Health at GoPetition.
