EPA Licensed to Kill COVID-19

What does it mean for a product to be EPA registered to fight COVID-19?  

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provided a list of recommended and approved disinfectants for our fight against COVID-19. The EPA has announced the emerging pathogen policy is now in effect, which means that if a disinfectant has a kill claim against a similar virus, it is suitable for disinfection against the emerging pathogen. Simply put, when a solid surface is coated with an EPA registered disinfectant for the specified dwell time, the chemical will effectively kill the COVID-19 virus.

Are you using the right tools to effectively fight COVID-19?

Though BGR has an array of disinfectants and other hygiene products to minimize your risk, we now stock 2 disinfectants that are EPA registered to fight COVID-19. Both Betco GE Fight Bac and Betco FastDraw pH7Q Dual Disinfectants have a specific kill-claim against COVID-19 virus.
