Although COVID-19 has caused people to change a lot of their behavior, habits such as vaping are not so easily dropped.

Physical contact and the sharing of unsanitized items during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially those that have regular contact with mouths has been limited. But when people share electronic cigarettes, they ignore these precautions, said Hope Frazier, an IU health and wellness educator.

E-cigarette users often carry them in pockets and purses, creating an opportunity to spread bacteria, in addition to the germs they carry from going in and out of mouths, Frazier said.
