Other Products

EPA suggests that a product with a claim against a human coronavirus can be used if a product with the emerging viral pathogen claim is not available. Clorox® has the following products with a claim against another type of human coronavirus that is different from COVID-19. The contact time listed may be shorter than for the products listed above but this is because coronaviruses are enveloped viruses and easier to kill than the large or small non-enveloped pathogens required for the emerging viral pathogen guidance.
