ALLEGANY — A leader in enforcing New York’s Clean Indoor Air Act, the Cattaraugus County Health Department is turning its sights to electronic cigarettes.
Dr. Kevin Watkins, Cattaraugus County public health director, recommended to the Board of Health Wednesday that they consider regulating the electronic cigarettes, which are not covered under the Clean Indoor Air Act. He also asked that herbal cigarettes be covered.
Dr. Watkins said the issues could be addressed at the same time Health Department officials are updating the county’s Sanitary Code.
