bathroom gfi sharing


Can I put my bathroom dedicated 20 amp GFI receptacle in a double gang box and share that space with a general lighting or fan switch circuit?
Thanks

Be sure to tie both grounds together and to the devices.

From what I gather in the original post, he is only sharing the box, it seems as if he is saying that the lighting is on a different circuit. If that's the case, then that bathroom receptacle circuit can feed receptacles in other bathrooms.
