List of Approved COVID-19 Disinfectants Grows to More Than 500

The U.S. EPA has approved more than 500 surface disinfectant products for use against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The list of approved disinfectants continues to be updated on a weekly basis. It includes helpful tips on how to use disinfectants properly, as well as FAQs to ensure correct product usage.

The EPA notes that if an approved disinfectant is not available, diluted household bleach can be used to disinfect surfaces. Users should closely follow the bleach dilution directions from the CDC. Alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol may also be used. 10/28/2020
