That being said I still use my glove when operating the handle.
I think there are ways that some could be used safely, yes. But the people who control the season shutoff valves seem not to.

So it's another case of personal opinion being irrelevant - I can't decide I'm comfortable using a fountain, when they seem to all be turned off (have both been asking others about status, and trying ones I pass even if I don't intend to use water from them).

I'm glad to hear you are finding some on though!
