And who will regulate or oversea the hanging of the signs, and ensure that businesses who do NOT require hand washing actually post a sign informing their customers of their decision?
The regulatory apparatus required to inspect for proper signage is functionally identical to the current regulatory apparatus.

I didn't see it mentioned, but does hand sanitizer count as washing your hands? Or does that fall outside the regulation and is not considered hand washing?
Feces (poop) from people or animals is an important source of germs like Salmonella, E. coli O157, and norovirus that cause diarrhea, and it can spread some respiratory infections like adenovirus and hand-foot-mouth disease. These kinds of germs can get onto hands after people use the toilet or change a diaper, but also in less obvious ways, like after handling raw meats that have invisible amounts of animal poop on them.
Many studies show that hand sanitizers work well in clinical settings like hospitals, where hands come into contact with germs but generally are not heavily soiled or greasy. Some data also show that hand sanitizers may work well against certain types of germs on slightly soiled hands. However, hands may become very greasy or soiled in community settings, such as after people handle food, play sports, work in the garden, or go camping or fishing. When hands are heavily soiled or greasy, hand sanitizers may not work well. Handwashing with soap and water is recommended in such circumstances.

SEn. Thom Tillis (R-NC) argued this week that restaurants should be able to “opt out” of health department regulations that require employees to wash their hands after using the bathroom.
Now there's some ammunition for the Dembs to use. It's as if the GOP wants to lose with that kind of rhetoric.
“We’re one of the most regulated nations in the history of the planet, and I think if we go about it in a common sense way that that solves a lot of problems. It makes these other big problems that we’re talking about imminently more easy to solve.”
Being a business man myself; I'm no fan of
regulation but for God sake food servers/workers need to be forced to wash their hands after going potty.
and he goes on to say....
if they choose to opt out of this policy as long as the post a sign that says ‘We don’t require our employees to wash their hands after leaving the restrooms.
This belongs in the "you just can't make this **** up dept....." "Post a sign"......OMFG
Perhaps Sen Tillis would enjoy a little **** with his meal. Not me!!!!
