Background: SARS-CoV-2 is the virus responsible for the current global pandemic, COVID-
19. Because this virus is novel, little is known about its sensitivity to disinfection.

Methods: We performed suspension tests against SARS-CoV-2 using three commercially
available quaternary ammonium compound (Quat) disinfectants and one laboratory-made
0.2% benzalkonium chloride solution.

Findings: Three of the four formulations completely inactivated the virus within 15 s of
contact, even in the presence of a soil load or when diluted in hard water.

Conclusion: Quats rapidly inactivate SARS-CoV-2, making them potentially useful for
controlling SARS-CoV-2 spread in hospitals and the community.
