Indiana's statewide smoke-free air law took effect on July 1, now every county in Indiana will be covered by a smoke-free air law. More Hoosiers will be protected from the dangers of secondhand smoke. Nearly all public places in the state, including restaurants and other workplaces, will be smoke-free.
Smoke-free businesses help protect employees from secondhand smoke. Often, smoke-free air policies at work encourage employees who smoke to consider quitting. Knowing what’s to be expected and preparing employees and customers for the new policy help ensure a smooth transition.
