Public Comment for Revised Tobacco and E-Cigarette Proposed Rule

The New Hanover County Health and Human Services Board will consider the adoption of a revised rule that would prohibit the use of tobacco, including the use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (e-cigarettes) at the regular Health and Human Services Board meeting on Tuesday, August 18, at 8 a.m. The drafted rule includes the prohibition of use of tobacco and e-cigarettes in county, town and city buildings, vehicles and grounds, as well as in public places in New Hanover County, like restaurants, bars and entertainment venues and sidewalks. This is a revised version of the rule adopted last December. Revisions include an exception to the rule in group therapeutic rehabilitation settings and an expansion further prohibiting tobacco and e-cigarette use on private sidewalks that are accessible to the public.

The public is invited to review this proposed rule and provide comments and feedback by noon on Friday, August 14. The Health and Human Services Board will review the drafted rule and comments at the August 18 meeting before voting.
