Access to Public Washrooms a Struggle During Pandemic

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

We had an experience last weekend that our restaurants should learn from. We had to go to Cambridge for family reasons. After three hours on the road and handling dogs and heaven knows what, we needed a toilet and soap and water. We stopped at a fast food restaurant where food is eaten with hands. The washrooms were closed. There was NO PLACE to wash hands. There were not even napkins or vinegar to use. The chances of us going back to that place after the plague passes is nil.

The point is that Meaford stores are in the same boat. If someone drives for hours to get here, they need food and cleaning too. Are our washrooms available? Will a car full of people be leaving with pleasant memories or problems with basic needs?

Please remind those who usually offer services to visitors, that the people who come here now will be back and we need to have good memories not frustrations for them.

Thank you,

Roberta Docherty, Meaford
