Maybe they think of "privy" as short for "private restroom", so
the participants can use the "privies" but the customers have to
use the "publies".

Or maybe by "participants" they mean the staff AND the paying customers,
excluding only people who just stop by to use the restrooms.  That would
suggest that the site is a restaurant on a city street with lots of
pedestrian traffic (like Broadway on Manhattan, where "Restrooms for
customers only" signs are commonplace).
