Recommended Disinfectants for COVID-19

The Federal Government recently provided residents a list of disinfectants that fight COVID-19 

These hard-surface disinfectant products meet Health Canada’s requirements for emerging viral pathogens and are authorized disinfectants that may be used against COVID-19. Coronaviruses are one of the easiest viruses to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product when used according to the label directions. 

The published list is quite lengthy.  In an effort to make this easier for you, I have summarized the list of items that you can normally find locally, but please note, stock in stores may vary.
