Interim Inspection Policy during COVID-19 Declared State of Emergency
12/12/19: The state’s Public Health Council yesterday approved new regulations that restrict the sale of nicotine vaping and flavored vaping and tobacco products. This action follows the Legislature’s passing and Governor Charlie Baker’s signing into law An Act Modernizing Tobacco Control, which provided the Massachusetts Department of Public Health with additional authority to regulate access to tobacco and electronic nicotine delivery systems, including vapes. With yesterday’s actions, the Governor’s temporary statewide ban on the sale of vaping products in place since September is no longer in effect. Please visit the left blue sidebar and select "Vaping" for more information.
