Thirty-six communities in Mass. are still at critical risk for EEE, 42 are at high risk, and 115 are at moderate risk. If that's not enough to worry about, the state is also raising new alarms over vaping. There's currently a bill being considered that would ban all flavored tobacco products across the Commonwealth. With all that in mind, we reached out to two public health experts on their advice for residents.

Guest

Monica Bharel, commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Jonathan Winickoff, practicing pediatrician at Mass General Hospital, and the former chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Tobacco Consortium.

This segment aired on September 12, 2019.
