There are no disinfectant labels that currently list the virus that causes COVID-19. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has pre-approved certain products that are effective against similar viruses. All disinfectant products on the Oregon list meet this standard. ODA (Oregon Department of Agriculture) has a list of Effective Disinfectants to Help Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) on Food Contact Surfaces (ODA).
