This column of List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 shows whether or not a product qualified for EPA’s emerging viral pathogen claim.
If you see “yes,” that means the product qualified for an emerging viral pathogen claim. To do so, a product must demonstrate efficacy (e.g. effectiveness) against a harder-to-kill virus than SARS-CoV-2.
- Products that have demonstrated efficacy against another human coronavirus similar to SARS-CoV-2; and
- Products that EPA has approved for use against select viruses that are harder to kill than SARS-CoV-2, such as norovirus.
EPA expects all products on List N to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 when used according to label directions, regardless of whether they have yes or no in this column.
