November 19th is the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout. This day encourages people to quit smoking cigarettes by starting with day one. As we continue to see the cases of COVID-19 increase both nationally and locally, protecting our health is so important.

The CDC recently changed their COVID-19 websites to indicate that adults who currently smoke cigarettes or adults who have a history of smoking cigarettes are at an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Earlier it was indicated that there may be an increased risk of COVID-19 for those who smoke cigarettes. We are now seeing indications that smoking cigarettes and a history of smoking cigarettes does have an impact on the risk of COVID-19.
