Pennsylvania is the first state to announce it is closing rest areas

March 17th - Tuesday

PennDOT and the Pennsylvania Turnpike announced that rest areas and welcome centers are being shut down.

Pennsylvania has closed all 35 of its highway rest stops to all activity following the declaration of a state of emergency.

A spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Transportation said the closure impacts not only the limited facilities at the rest stops, like bathrooms and vending machines. It also shuts down parking access as well.

That matches the new policy at 15 Pennsylvania Turnpike rest areas, where convenience stores and portable toilets remain open but restaurants and indoor bathrooms with flush toilets were shut Tuesday as part of a larger shutdown of state offices.

March 18th - Wednesday

Pennsylvania’s Department of Transportation has agreed to reopen 13 locations for truck parking, and add portable toilets, after trucking and factory advocates complained to President Donald Trump that the state’s Tuesday shutdown of 48 Interstate highway rest areas and facilities threatened driver safety and deliveries of vital food, medical and industrial supplies.

Grew up without them. Pull over, walk into the woods or open the front and back passenger doors and get in between! Carry some of that toilet paper that's been hoarded and a trash bag! :giggle::giggle::cool:

Our City Parks have closed Bathrooms. The main reason is that they do not have the personnel and equipment/supplies to keep them sanitized.

Outstanding, some public states stop rest areas restrooms were not sanitized properly IMHO.
