Sterilex, a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based provider of EPA-registered disinfectant products suitable for use in food facilities, says it has an expanded protocol designed to be used by foodservice operations to safeguard workers.

 “Essential workers at restaurants and foodservice operations don’t have the luxury of telecommuting. It requires hands-on labor and an element of risk to continue serving the public,” said Shira Kramer, Ph.D., public health epidemiologist, and company founder. “Here at Sterilex, we want to help foodservice operators enhance their disinfection protocols to protect their valued employees and keep their businesses running.” 

While foodservice operations already have sanitation procedures in place for food preparation areas, these additional protocols encompass other areas where worker safety could be compromised, such as breakrooms, restrooms and offices.

“The same Sterilex products being used in food preparation areas are now on EPA’s List-N of disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2 (Coronavirus),” Kramer said. “We’ve devised additional disinfection protocols for control of viruses in non-preparation areas as another layer of protection to help safeguard essential workers and to reduce cross contamination between treated surfaces.” 

The company says expanded virucidal disinfection in breakrooms, restrooms and offices can be accomplished by either mopping, wiping or spraying surfaces with a mixture of Sterilex Ultra Disinfectant Cleaner and Activator Solution. Non-food contact surfaces do not need rinsing. Complete application recommendations and protocols can be found at sterilex.com/coronavirus.   

COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2. The company’s Sterilex Ultra Disinfectant Cleaner Solution 1, when combined with Sterilex Ultra Activator Solution, according to the proper protocol, kills similar viruses. Therefore, it can be used against SARS-CoV-2. EPA has included these products on its short list of disinfectants companies can use to clean facilities during this current viral outbreak.
