ALBANY — Vaping and electronic cigarettes will be banned starting Wednesday at work, in bars and at restaurants.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill last month that extends New York’s indoor smoking ban to vaporizer products.

The law takes effect Wednesday, which on Thanksgiving eve is one of the busiest bar nights of the year.

“I am proud to have sponsored this legislation which will make restaurants and other indoor areas vape free, protecting workers and patrons who do not wish to be exposed to the various chemicals contained in electronic cigarettes,” Senate Health Committee chairman Kemp Hannon, R-Nassau County, said in a statement.
