COVID-19 Update: Wariness of Public Restrooms Leading to Disposable Urinal Trend

June 22, 2020

Concern about coming in contact with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in public restrooms has led many facilities to implement stringent cleaning protocols. As stay-at-home orders loosen and people begin leaving their homes, a variety of facilities, including roadside rest areas have stepped up their restroom cleaning efforts.

Despite all the extra cleanings, the public is apparently still leery of using public restrooms. This has led to an increased interest in disposable urinal bags, Crain’s Chicago Business reports.

These urinal bags contain chemicals that turn liquid into an odorless solid. After use, people can simply dispose of the bags in a trash can.

Profitero, an e-commerce analytics firm, found the Amazon.com search rank for disposable urinal bags has increased five times between May 2 and June 6. Other products people are searching more frequently for on the internet include a urination device for women to use while standing.

You can instill more confidence in the public’s perception of your facility’s restrooms by following these best practices.
