The Health Department is asking residents to participate in the E-Cigarettes and the Smoke-Free Illinois Act Survey regarding e-cigarettes (or vapes) and their use in public places. The survey includes questions about perception of harm, flavored e-cigarette and tobacco products, and willingness to support legislation. In 2017, the Health Department surveyed 1,306 youth and adult residents of Lake County on topics related to tobacco control. Results indicate that Lake County residents are concerned about the health effects associated with e-cigarettes, secondhand vapor, and youth access to tobacco products. In addition, 75 percent of survey respondents supported prohibiting the use of e-cigarettes indoors and in public places. The survey will remain open through November 30, 2019. Take the survey.
