For a product to claim it kills a specific pathogen such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID 19, testing must be conducted in accordance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) testing guidelines, and the EPA must approve the data and claim. This testing process is underway for the Microban 24 Bathroom Cleaner. At this time, Microban 24 Bathroom Cleaner is on the EPA List N, which is a list of products shown to be effective against harder to kill viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2, under the EPA’s Emerging Viral Pathogen Policy.
