    From the CDC’s updated Science Brief mentioned in this article:

    “Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) studies have been conducted to understand and characterize the relative risk of SARS-CoV-2 fomite transmission and evaluate the need for and effectiveness of prevention measures to reduce risk. Findings of these studies suggest that the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection via the fomite transmission route is low, and generally less than 1 in 10,000, which means that each contact with a contaminated surface has less than a 1 in 10,000 chance of causing an infection.”

    According to the CDC, in 2008, adults had the same chance of sustaining a nonfatal injury in a bathroom. See, CDC’s June 2011 “Nonfatal Bathroom Injuries Among Persons Aged ≥15 Years — United States, 2008”.

    Maybe the government should issue orders closing public bathrooms.
