About 5,358,825 people died of COVID-19 in the past two years. This troubling number has left us all wondering how we can better protect ourselves from this virus.

And even with a vaccine, the pandemic is not over. If you have an event coming up like a concert or festival, you’ll need to learn how to make covid friendly porta-potties. So keep reading this article so your next event can be safe, fun, and COVID-free!

What Are Pandemic Porta Potties?

All bathrooms during COVID can be a dangerous area, especially if the right precautions are not being taken. So if you are renting porta potties for an event, ensure the company has strict sanitization laws.

For example, ensure they sanitize their facilities before and after a rental. Check if they also have portable handwashing stations. Some rental companies may even have portable hand sanitation dispensers.

Are Regular Toilets Safer?

Not necessarily, regular toilets that flush cause bacteria to spread in the air. In fact, it’s recommended that you close the toilet before flushing to avoid bacteria from coming up and attaching to you.

Although regular toilets are easier to keep clean, they don’t always hold fewer bacteria than a porta-potty. So if you have an event coming up, and you’re deciding between renting a porta potty or renting a venue with public restrooms, it’s best to rent covid-friendly porta-potties

This option is less expensive and when done correctly, it’s very clean and efficient.

How Can I Make My Next Event Safer

Hiring the best sanitary porta-potties is the best way to keep an event COVID-free. However, there are other steps you must take. For starters, a simple “wash your hands” poster inside of clean porta-potties can go a long way.

You should also implement CDC rules for your guest. For example, keep each porta potty 5-feet apart from each other. And if you can’t provide a handwashing station, provide hand sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol.

You should also regulate the lines for the porta-potties by putting foot stickers on the ground that are 5-feet apart. Doing so will elevate tight and long lines! 

You can even take it a step further and not allow foreign objects in the porta-potties. For example, purses and cellphones since these items can hold and spread the virus.

So you can ask guests to leave these items with a loved one or friend. Lastly, another great way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is by having health checks. Before a person is allowed to enter a porta-potty, they must get their temperature checked.

Make COVID a Thing of the Past

Before you’re next event, ensure you follow these tips to minimize the risk of COVID-19. And remember, COVID-19 is not 100% preventable, even if you take all the precautions necessary. However, you can minimize the risks of spreading COVID by following CDC guidelines.
