GFCI in Bath


DO I need to have a GFCI in the bathroom if the cirvuit is protected by a GFCI breaker?

Thanks,

The GFI protection can be provided by a receptacle device or a breaker. The receptacle costs less and you do not need to go to the panel to reset it should it trip. Older panels may not accept a GFI breaker.
