How long should one wait before entering a bathroom stall that someone has just exited?

My question is: “How risky is to NOT using a public bathroom if i have to? 😀 “.
I would love automatically doors, as to not touch the door after washing my hands.

I use towel paper. Also put something in your pocket or purse if there is none there. I do not use air blown hand dryers. Use your towel , or bring a clean wash rag to open door.

It is definitely very risky because you do not know who used that before you and if they were being hygienic. It is best to practice cleanliness not just to protect yourself, but the people around you. Disinfect as much as possible when you have to use the public bathrooms.

I think everywhere its risky,if its public toilets or supermarkets its still a risk,if we take care,desinfect hand or use gloves we can avoid being infected with covid-19.
