E-cigs and vaping added to NY's Clean Indoor Air Act

CHENANGO COUNTY – The New York State Department of Health and the Chenango County Health Department are reminding people that the use of electronic cigarettes is now banned from use indoors everywhere that smoking tobacco products are prohibited.
