Smoking Cessation, Vaping and COVID-19

Here are three important things to know about COVID-19 and smoking or vaping:

  • People who smoke or vape are at an increased risk of developing more severe symptoms of COVID-19

  • Smoking or vaping doubles the risk of developing respiratory viruses, such as COVID-19

  • If you quit, your health can improve within days and weeks, which could increase the odds of recovering more quickly if you get COVID-19

If you or your loved one need help quitting, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visit quitnow.net/Oregon
