The following hard-surface disinfectants meet Health Canada’s requirements for emerging viral pathogens. These authorized disinfectants may be used against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses. This means they are one of the easiest viruses to kill with the appropriate disinfectant when used according to the label directions. How to find out which disinfectant meets Health Canada’s requirements for COVID-19
- Locate the Drug Identification Number (DIN) on the disinfectant product label
- Look for that number on the Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) list
