Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pesticide Information

Pesticide Use. Did You Know:

  • Pesticide products used to disinfect surfaces or objects must first be registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and then by DEC.
  • EPA has activated its Emerging Viral Pathogens Guidance for Antimicrobial Products in order to enable the use of certain EPA-registered disinfectant products against COVID-19.
  • DEC has created a list of products registered in New York State that correspond to the list of products identified by EPA. This list is subject to change, so refer back.
