The bathroom GFCI can extend to other bathrooms or within the same bathroom, but only as receptacles, and it must be a dedicated 20 amp circuit.

Bathroom GFCI can be in one of two configurations. Both of them must be 20 amp.
1. Gfci can serve several bathrooms but only the receptacles in the bathrooms and only bathrooms.

2. GFCI can serve receptacle and lights and other devices but only in the bathroom. The circuit can not serve other rooms or other bathrooms.
