Smoke Free Status of Outdoor Places

Does the law require any outdoor or quasi-outdoor spaces to be smoke free or restrict smoking in any way? Examples of such places include within a specified distance of doorways, outdoor patios of bars or restaurants, parks/beaches, outdoor stadiums, and outdoor markets.



The law prohibits smoking or exposing others to tobacco smoke in all workplaces, public places, and public transport facilities. It is uncertain whether the law includes prohibiting smoking in outdoor places. The procedures for the implementation of smoke free places are to be defined by regulatory enactment, which have not yet been issued.
