    I’ve seen these signs popping up in Canada. I know the Canada Revenue Agency bathrooms and the bathrooms in some schools and malls have them. The writing is twice as long, too, since it’s in English and French! They started showing up around the same time as the swine flu epidemic and the ubiquitous hand sanitizer dispensers.
