Requesting COVID-19 Supplies

Schools, colleges and departments may request cleaning supplies for their areas following the COVID-19 PPE and Supplies Request Guidelines and form.

Selecting a Disinfectant

The EPA has identified disinfectants that are qualified for use against the COVID-19 Virus. The CDC has also identified a 70% alcohol solution is appropriate for surface disinfection. Surface disinfectants received from the University’s central COVID-19 supplies are approved by the EPA and CDC.   Safety and use information for disinfectants obtained from the University’s central COVID-19 supplies is provided below.

Please contact EHSS at ehss@syr.edu for questions about the selection or use of appropriate disinfectants.
