Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(a) The purpose of this Section is to promote the privacy, safety, and gender inclusivity of all Illinois residents and visitors. This Section shall be liberally construed to carry out this purpose.
(b) In this Section, "multiple-occupancy restroom" means a room or suite of rooms, intended for simultaneous use by 2 or more occupants, containing at least one sink and at least 2 toilets.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any multiple-occupancy restroom may be identified as an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom and designated for use by any person of any gender. An all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom must include the following:
(1) Inclusive signage that is prominently displayed
at the exterior of the multiple-occupancy restroom for all who are entering the restroom, that does not indicate any specific gender, and that indicates any component that is present in the multiple-occupancy restroom and is required under this subsection or subsection (e).
(2) Floor-to-ceiling stall dividers equipped with a
sturdy and functioning locking mechanism controlled by the user and a partition privacy cover or strip that ensures that no one is able to see through the space between the stall divider and door.
An all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom shall not contain urinals.
(d) Any multiple-occupancy restroom may be converted into an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom. If a multiple-occupancy restroom is to be converted into an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom and a multiple-occupancy restroom serving a different gender is located adjacent or in proximity to the all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom, then both multiple-occupancy restrooms must be converted into all-gender multiple-occupancy restrooms.
(e) If a facility converts any multiple-occupancy restroom into an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom or commences construction, or commences alterations exceeding 50% of the facility, and implements an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom, the all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom must, in addition to the requirements of subsection (c):
(1) satisfy all accessibility requirements set forth
by the federal Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, and the Illinois Accessibility Code (71 Ill. Adm. Code 400);

(f) If an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom is newly constructed, any newly constructed multiple-occupancy restroom located adjacent or in proximity to the newly constructed all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom must also be designated as an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom.
(g) When plumbing fixtures in a facility are otherwise required to meet female-to-male ratio requirements, including, but not limited to, the requirements under Section 15 or the minimum fixture requirements adopted under the Illinois Plumbing License Law, each individual fixture in an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom may be counted toward the required number of either female or male fixtures until the minimum requirement is met. If a fixture is counted toward the minimum required fixtures for females, that same fixture shall not also be counted toward the minimum required fixtures for males. If a fixture is counted toward the minimum required fixtures for males, that same fixture shall not also be counted toward the minimum required fixtures for females.
This subsection shall not be construed to allow any violation of female-to-male ratio requirements set forth by this Act.
(h) During any inspection of a facility by a health officer, health inspector, or building inspector, the health officer, health inspector, or building inspector may inspect the facility to determine whether it complies with this Section, if it is required to do so.
(i) The Department of Public Health shall adopt rules to implement this Section.
