Posted By: Karleen Kos, CAE Covid-19 Resources , For the Public , Industry News , Standards and Regulations ,

The Coronavirus-19 (COVID-19) pandemic has ushered in increased vigilance and care while the world works together to prevent and contain the virus.

As an essential industry during the pandemic, portable sanitation providers have been on the front lines every day. Our service personnel have worked tirelessly to ensure that each customer and job site receives the best resources we can offer during times in which critical supplies are short and need is great.

Although the pandemic is still affecting most areas, general precautions for preventing the spread of COVID-19 vary by region. It is likely these requirements will continue to evolve over the coming months as conditions change and the virus mutates. Whatever is true where you live, work, or enjoy recreation, the Portable Sanitation Association International (PSAI) hopes that you have access to sanitation resources that help keep you safe. To that end, we offer the following guidance for portablesanitation during the time of COVID-19. It is our belief that until there is a widely accessible, reliable method of preventing this illness, these guidelines should be observed by everyone responsible for providing nonsewered sanitation services.

As COVID-19 circumstances continue to evolve, so will public health and safety recommendations and requirements. Because of this, our guidance will be updated periodically. Readers with questions are invited to contact the PSAI for more information.
