Nueva Vizcaya Governor Carlos Padilla has ordered the prohibition of vaping or the use of e-cigarettes in public places in the province.
This after the Nueva Vizcaya provincial board amended “The Smoke-Free Ordinance of Nueva Vizcaya.”
In the amended measure, minors will be strictly prohibited from vaping aside from smoking tobacco products.
It also orders the public places and establishment to include a “No Vaping” sign in their areas.
The provincial board cited a World Health Organization (WHO) report that said the risks of vaping have not yet been fully determined and that it may pose a threat to public health.
