Under Senate Bill 556, also dubbed the “The Equitable Restrooms Act,” all single-occupancy restrooms “in a place of public accommodation or public building shall be identified as all-gender and designated for use by no more than one person at a time or for family or assisted use,” the law states.

“Each single-occupancy restroom shall be outfitted with exterior signage that marks the single-occupancy restroom as a restroom and does not indicate any specific gender,” the legislation continues.

The law also states that health officers or health inspectors will also be allowed to inspect public buildings “during any inspection” to ensure the space complies with the new law.
