The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed how we approach the design of the built environment forever. Bathrooms and washrooms are among the most frequented conveniences in a building with many shared touchpoints, such as doors, tap handles and soap dispensing buttons. Calls are growing for design innovations that ensure all future builds comply with infection control measures. Sensor-operated taps, soap dispensers and hand dryers can undoubtedly help eliminate the risk of surface-to-hand transmission – but first we must dispel some common myths and misconceptions.
