Temporary stay on flavored vaping products ban

UPDATE: October 17, 2019

The Oregon Court of Appeals has granted a temporary stay of Oregon Health Authority’s temporary rules banning flavored vaping products. The emergency disease reporting rule is still in effect.

ACTUALIZACIÓN: 17 de octubre de 2019

El Tribunal de Apelaciones de Oregon concedió un aplazamiento temporal de la ejecución de las reglas de Oregon Health Authority que prohíben temporalmente el uso de productos de vapeo con sabor. La regla para reportar enfermedades en situaciones de emergencia aún está en efecto.

Public health warning: Stop using vaping products

The Oregon Health Authority is urging Oregonians to stop using all vaping products until federal and state officials have determined the cause of serious lung injuries and deaths linked to the use of both cannabis and nicotine vaping products. State health officials will continue to work closely with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration to determine the cause of deaths and illnesses in Oregon and across the nation.

No vaping products should be considered safe. Until health experts can identify why people who have used these products have become seriously ill, and in some cases died, no vaping product should be used.

People who experience symptoms of the illness after using vaping products, such as shortness of breath, cough or chest pain, should immediately seek medical attention.
