Lists of Approved Surface Sanitizers in California, CDPH Guidance on Face Coverings

CA Approved Surface Sanitizers

The CRC has complied the following list of approved sanitizers for use in California from the much longer EPA list released last week. These materials can be used to clean surfaces in plants and on farms. The list is presented by type – wipes, solids, ready to use and dilutable and includes information on contact time.

In addition, we are providing separate lists of the materials by company and a list of company resources.

The EPA provides updates on a weekly basis. We will review and edit our list as applicable. 

CDPH Guidance on Face Coverings

We are attaching guidance today from the CA Department of Public Health on face coverings. Please note their use is not mandatory at this time. LA and Riverside have required them when you leave your home, however. We expect other counties to adopt similar requirements in the upcoming days.
