The COVID-19 pandemic has changed almost everything, but one thing remains true: people need to use the restroom from time to time. If you are organizing an event in the coming weeks — one that hopefully adheres to your state and municipality guidelines regarding the size of parties — then renting portable toilets is a good idea. This may enable you to keep the event outside rather than letting people indoors to use the toilet, which will help reduce the risk of virus transmission.
But what else is there to know about renting portable toilets in a world that's fighting a virus? Take a look at the following tips and information.
Rent more toilets than you normally would.
These days, you really don't want people to have to collect in one place and wait in line to use the bathroom. Renting a couple more portable toilets than you normally would can help prevent lines from forming. For a small party of 20 or fewer people, renting two toilets should be good. This also reduces the number of people who will use each toilet, which means less risk of exposure should anyone at your party be unknowingly carrying the virus.
Rent a handwashing station.
Handwashing is always a good idea, but even more so these days! Definitely rent a handwashing station from the portable toilet company. Alternatively, you could rent bathrooms that have their own handwashing stations inside. Hang up a few signs to remind partygoers to actually use these handwashing stations, and set a good example by doing so yourself.
Put the toilets further apart from one another.
Instead of putting the toilets right next to each other, place them about 10 feet apart. This way, if lines do form at the toilet, there will be more space between those lines, which will reduce the risk of virus transmission.
Let the company deliver when you're not around.
When you call to rent the bathrooms, make plans with the company as far as when the toilets will be dropped off, where they need to go, and how you'll pay. Send them a photo of where the toilets should be dropped off and placed. This way, you don't have to be around when the toilets are delivered; this reduces the risk of exposure to the virus for both you and the portable toilet company's workers.
Toilet rental is still important in spite of the pandemic. Keep the virus in mind by following the tips above.
