Toilet

  1. Our port-a-loo can be utilized by any group at any time during their visit

  2. However, clearly this is the place where infection is most likely to spread whilst on site,

  3. The toilet is sanitized before and after a group’s visit, if the site is in use by a single group, the group leaders will be asked to support in cleaning the toilet with site provided materials.

  4. The toilet door must be left open when not in use. (Therefore if the door is shut, the toilet is in use & there is no need to touch the door lock)

  5. As this is a porta-loo only cold water, hand soap and hand sanitiser spray is available at the cubicle.

 

Finally, enjoy and respect the site, if you’re not sure, ASK!
