I was considering taking my pup to the doggie park until I read this! Since there hasn't been a problem in the stores I shop at, I never thought about the parks and of course the doggie parks!

7 red flags to be on the lookout for when restaurants reopen / restroomsThe Gross Side Effect of Coronavirus You Didn't See Coming
You've likely read a lot about how dangerous public bathrooms are amid coronavirus. They're highly trafficked, poorly ventilated, and full of touch points prone to unwashed hands, a trifecta of contagion. That's why many public restrooms have been closed amid the pandemic
. But there's been one side effect of this that's even more disgusting to think about: Public urination
in cities across the nation is on the rise. The New York Post reports a recent scourge of public urination in New York City, particularly as the weather has gotten warmer and more urban citizens are venturing outside..
"There's definitely been an uptick on this street, from what I've seen," one New Yorker told The Post. Another individual added that public urination is a big topic of conversation amongst her friends. "Since the pandemic, I have done it myself in Prospect Park, behind a dumpster in Williamsburg and Greenpoint," she said. "All of the public restrooms like McDonald's and Starbucks are closed. If you are far away from your home, what are you supposed to do?"
In New Jersey, after parks opened in early May, New Jersey State Police Superintendent Col. Pat Callahan issued a warning after an "inordinate amount" of urine and feces was being left behind in water bottles i
n these public areas. "We understand that the restrooms are closed, but people should plan accordingly and should not be urinating in bottles and leaving them behind," Callahan said.https://chi.streetsblog.org/2020/06/02/the-lack-of-public-restrooms-during-the-pandemic-is-impacting-mobility/
Here's a quote that we all can feel!!
“Because I’m pregnant I need to go to the bathroom, like, all the time,”
I can go grocery shopping or take a trip to the forest preserve to go for a walk are complicated by not having places to pee. All the field houses are closed in the Cook County Forest Preserves, so when going for a walk I’ve brought my own TP and resorted to squatting in the woods.”
