Officially known as COVID-19, the coronavirus is a newly discovered infectious disease that causes mild to moderate respiratory illness in most persons. COVID-19 spreads through saliva droplets or nasal discharges whenever an infected person sneezes or coughs. In addition to respiratory-based symptoms, fever, tiredness, shortness of breath, aches, and pains, and sore throat are common symptoms. It is recommended that individuals with mild symptoms self isolate and contact their medical provider OR the COVID-19 hotline for possible testing. If you are experiencing more severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing call your doctor and seek medical attention as soon as possible. Also, keep in mind that you may be infected and not show any symptoms.
For most of us who vape regularly it would be really difficult to completely remove vaping from our daily routine. Fortunately, there is no reason to do so as of yet since experts have yet to directly correlate vaping with an increased risk of contracting COVID-19. That being said, it is still important to exercise certain precautions. If you tend to vape in a group and like to share your vaporizer with others, it is recommended to avoid doing so at this point in time. Since this disease spreads via saliva droplets the risk of contracting COVID-19 when sharing your vape with others is greater. While this might be a bit of a buzz kill for some it is better to be safe than sorry.
To reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19 whilst vaping it is recommended to keep a few things in mind. Firstly, refrain from sharing your vaporizer with others for the time being, preferably for at least a month. This is just a rough estimate since COVID-19 is rapidly developing and timelines can change in a flash. Next, we recommend you keep your equipment clean and disinfected — clean your mouthpiece and unit regularly. This is especially the case if you work in an essential industry and have to come in contact with other people and touch public surfaces. While it is understandable that one has to restock on juice, coils, and et cetera, it is probably best to avoid visiting your local vape shop for the time being (if they are even open). If at all possible look at ordering your products online. It is of the utmost importance that we take social distancing rules seriously.
As a result of the recent COVID-19 epidemic, a large amount of businesses have either closed by their own accord or have been ordered to be closed per government guidelines. Sadly, your local vape shop might be included in this list of closed businesses. Admittedly, this is disappointing. Especially if you are in need of a juice re-fill or replacement coils. In lieu of this it is recommended to purchase your replacement products online through your local vape shop’s online marketplace or with other retailers. You can also purchase replacement products right here at the Vape Vet Store. It is unknown as to when local businesses will re-open due to the rapid developments of this pandemic.
Another consequence of the recent outbreak has been a disruption in global supply chain networks. Since a great deal of products are produced and shipped from China, there is a chance your favorite vaping products may be on backorder or completely unavailable. If this is the case then we recommend you shop around to see if any other retailers have your items in stock already and do not have to order the product directly from China. This disruption of global shipping can apply to vaporizers, coils, e-liquids, and other products. As disappointing as this may be, all we can do is wait and see how this situation develops and hope everything gets back to normal. You may have to forgo your vaporizer and vaping supplies for the time being.

Smokers that use glass pipes are often reluctant to move to a vaping solution, like a vape pen. However, many smokers may be satisfied with the vaping experience a desktop vape provides, even when compared to a bong. What's the difference between a bong and a desktop vape, and is it worth owning both?
