The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) recognizes the pointed efforts by school districts to ensure a clean and safe environment for children in the classroom amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It is imperative that all disinfectants are being applied according to proper use as directed on the label.

It has come to ODA’s attention that some districts may have been misled regarding the effectiveness of certain products to guard against COVID-19 or instructed to use products in a manner not within their recommended use. Disinfectants are considered pesticides under U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations, and as such, must be used according to their label to ensure safety and effectiveness.
