EPA-Approved Products Proven To Kill The COVID-19 Virus

The CDC states that the primary and most important mode of transmission for COVID-19 is through close contact from person-to-person. Based on data from lab studies on COVID-19 and what is know about similar respiratory diseases, it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this isn’t thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

Best practices to minimize the possibility of transmission is to sanitized all surfaces, especially frequently touched surfaces as often with a sanitizer that kills the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.
