Smoke Free Status of Outdoor Places
Within 35 feet of smoke free places
The law prohibits smoking within 35 feet of any place where smoking is prohibited. Although the law allows smoking areas to be set aside in outdoor bars, restaurants, and hotels, these areas must also be located at least 35 feet from an enclosed public place.
The law aligns with FCTC Art. 8 and the FCTC Art. 8 Guidelines, which require Parties to adopt and implement measures providing for protection from exposure to tobacco smoke in indoor workplaces and public places, public transport and, "as appropriate, other public places."
