Due to the coronavirus concerns, there has been a shortage of toilet paper on store shelves.  This may cause people to look for alternative products such as paper towels, facial tissues, baby wipes, flushable wipes, and other similar items.  These products do not break down like toilet paper and can cause sanitary sewer backups, which in turn can cause additional public health concerns.  PLEASE DON’T FLUSH ITEMS OTHER THAN TOILET PAPER DOWN YOUR TOILET.
