We have 4 single-occupancy unisex bathrooms in the facility, and they are fully ADA compliant. The signage currently reflects the “unisex & disabled” symbol, which is soon to be changed to “all-gender” signage to better identify each bathroom. Given the relatively small size of the facility, other than for architectural floor plans, there are no building maps that are distributed.
