Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Clorox Healthcare has taken immediate and extraordinary measures to elevate our response to what has been an unprecedented demand of our cleaning and disinfection products. We have activated in a variety of ways including operating with increased efficiency, increasing production at our plants to 24 hours a day, and working with our partners to accelerate our supply chain. More specifically, we’ve increased our CloroxPro Germicidal Bleach production to 6 times historical levels in order to provide healthcare facilities another disinfecting option in the absence of ready-to-use wipes and sprays. Thanks to these efforts, we have been able to make almost 18 million more disinfecting products overall as a company and hundreds of trucks are being dispatched to every corner of the country each day.
In addition, to help healthcare facilities navigate this challenging time, we have developed a COVID-19 resource page where healthcare professionals can access all our educational resources and tools, relevant blog posts on the latest developments in the pandemic, and a list of CloroxPro and Clorox Healthcare products eligible to be used against the virus based on the EPA’s Emerging Viral Pathogen Policy. Resources include but are not limited to:
- Pathogen education sheet on SARS-CoV-2 providing background and details on this novel strain of coronavirus
- Facility manager guide outlining steps to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 in long-term care facilities.
- Dilution instructions for using CloroxPro™ Clorox® Germicidal Bleach against SARS-CoV-2 in healthcare environments.
- Video demonstrating how to use CloroxPro™ Clorox® Germicidal Bleach Against SARS-CoV-2
We are proud to support healthcare professionals and we thank you for your partnership during this time. While we don’t know how long this current crisis will last, our promise is that we will continue to work tirelessly, not only to manufacture more product, but to identify additional ways to get it where it is needed most as quickly and as safely as possible. We wish you, your staff, your families, and your colleagues’ safety and good health during this difficult time.
