Dilution solutions to protect against emerging pathogens
As the partner of choice for many of Canada’s hospitals, CloroxProTM takes the responsibility to continually find solutions that meet the unique needs of each hospital seriously. To support those on the front lines in maintaining clean and safe environments is our first priority, especially in these crucial times. That is why we are committed to helping you follow disinfection best practices that meet the standards of safety you expect and deserve.
In the face of the current surge in demand for disinfection strategies to help limit the spread of COVID-19, healthcare facilities may be finding that the “Ready-To-Use” CloroxProTM products they have come to rely on may not always be available. We are here to help with other Health Canada registered choices.
Health Canada has developed a public list of hard-surface disinfectants that are likely to be effective and may be used against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.Several of Clorox disinfectants are in that list including Clorox Commercial Solutions Clorox Germicidal Bleach (DIN 02459108).
Clorox Commercial Solutions Clorox Germicidal Bleach protects against SARS-CoV-2 based on Health Canada’s emerging viral pathogen guidance
Per the respective emerging viral pathogen guidances, Clorox Commercial Solutions Clorox Germicidal Bleach has demonstrated effectiveness against Poliovirus (Health Canada) and Rhinovirus (EPA) on hard, nonporous surfaces. Based on Health Canada and EPA emerging viral pathogen guidance, it can be used against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Poliovirus and Rhinovirus.
Please note, Health Canada is allowing, under interim measures, US labeled products. Thus you may find the Clorox Commercial Solutions Clorox Germicidal Bleach in US packaging under the brand name: CloroxPro® Clorox Germicidal Bleach.
