Vaping will now only be allowed in areas of casinos and stand-alone bars where minors cannot enter.
The amended clean-air law was enacted during the 2019 legislative session, and is expected to go into effect on the 1st of January. The Southern Nevada Health District said that the aim is protecting citizens from secondhand e-cig vapour, and spaces where vaping will no longer be allowed will include child care facilities, theaters, arcades, malls, restaurants and bars where minors are allowed entry.

To this effect, as for tobacco products, the use of vaping products and electronic cigarettes will now only be allowed in areas of casinos and stand-alone bars where minors cannot enter, as well as retail tobacco stores and convention floors at tobacco-related trade shows.

E-vapour has minimal impact on air quality

Meanwhile, a 2018 peer-reviewed study, comparing e-liquid vapour to cigarette smoke, had indicated that exhaled e-liquid vapour product particles are actually liquid droplets that evaporate within seconds. In line with what previous air samples had suggested, this study had shown that vaping probably has a minimal impact on indoor air quality.

The study titled “Characterization of the Spatial and Temporal Dispersion Differences between Exhaled e-cigarette mist and Cigarette Smoke,” was published in the renowned journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research. For both e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes, the particle concentrations registered following each puff were in the same order of magnitude.

However, for vaping products the particle concentration returned to background values within a few seconds, whilst for cigarettes it increased with successive puffs, only returning to background levels after 30-45 minutes.
