List of Products For Use Against Coronavirus

List of Products For Use Against Coronavirus

The American Chemistry Council’s Center for Biocide Chemistries has put together “a list of products that have been pre-approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use against emerging enveloped viral pathogens and can be used during the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This product list is not exhaustive but can be used by business owners, health professionals, and the public to identify products suitable for use against COVID-19.”

The first product listed, Purell Foodservice Surface Sanitizer, has a low toxicity rating and is proven to be effective against enveloped and non-enveloped viruses. Follow the product’s label instructions for use.

Note: The SARS-CoV-2 virus is effectively removed with soap and water. That cleaning step is the most important step in decontaminating surfaces and hands. In sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces and using hand sanitizer, organic matter has to be removed first.
