Access to Public Washrooms a Struggle During Pandemic

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.
