Novel Coronavirus 2019 is a new coronavirus strain not previously identified in humans. On February 11, 2020 the World Health Organization announced SARS-CoV-2 as the official name of the new virus responsible for the COVID-19 disease.
The virus that causes COVID-19 appears to spreading easily in the community in some affected areas. This is why CDC recommends isolating infected individuals until they no longer pose a risk of infecting others. The CDC states that coronaviruses commonly spread from person to person through close personal contact, in the air by coughing or sneezing, touching surfaces or objects with the virus on it and then touching your nose, mouth or eyes before washing your hands.
According to the CDC, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Take steps to protect yourself including:
If you are sick, stay home and get medical medical attention. Cover your sneezes and coughs and wear a face mask.
Clean and Disinfect frequently touched surfaces every day. Doorknobs, light switches, cell phones, keyboards and faucets are a few examples.
To disinfect, the CDC recommends a diluted household bleach solution, 70% alcohol or an EPA-registered product from List N Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2.
PURE® Hard Surface (EPA Reg. No. 72977-5-73912) kills SARS-CoV-2 virus on hard, non-porous surfaces in 30 seconds and is included in the US EPA’s List N: : Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2.
The list is comprised of the primary product registration number and may be sold under a different brand name. You can identify the product by the three-part EPA Reg. No. The first two parts match the primary product and the third set of numbers represents the distributor ID. SDC3A (EPA Reg. No. 72977-5) is the primary product registered by the EPA and sold under brand name PURE Hard Surface.
I highly recommend using PURE Hard Surface as your primary disinfectant and sanitizer to use at your school facilities to keep your kids and employees safe. Pure Hard Surface has given us a peace of mind knowing that our facilities are disinfected and sanitized to the highest degree possible.

We have been using PURE Hard Surface in oure facility for over two years, and we are very happy with the results. We also use PURE on our warehouse floors to help control and prevent any forklift traffic cross-contamination into RTE areas.
Plant Sanitarian, Cabot Creamery
We have seen a significant reduction in yeast and mold in our air since using PURE Hard Surface Sanitizer. This has resulted in improved air quality for the employees. We also appreciate PURE's long-lasting killing power to help us control Salmonella between cleaning cycles.

"We use SDC in our sanitation every day. It’s mandatory. Not only that, but we actively try to find new ways to use it…in drains, break rooms, for cleaning harvest materials, and for projects X, Y, and Z. Once we understood the science and efficacy of SDC, we were all in. This product is the final layer of security in our sanitation program. Environmental monitoring and protection are the critical must-have in our operation. It is non-negotiable, and we must be successful. The group at PURE Bioscience have this same mission, so the partnership is obvious."
Vice President of Operations, Taylor Farms California
With more attention being given to environmental monitoring by the FDA, we are glad to have PURE Hard Surface as a tool to help us keep our facility and food products safe.
