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 in “open areas during cultural and sports events, meetings, actions, within the boundaries of beaches, with the exception of places specially designated for smoking.” Therefore, smoking is restricted in these places.
