What is the Smoke-Free Air Act of 2002?
The New York City Smoke-Free Air Act prohibits smoking in virtually all workplaces in the City of New York, including many places where smoking had previously been been permitted. This includes public gathering places such as bars, restaurants, catering halls, and sports arenas. Ensuring a smoke-free workplace is the responsibility of individual establishments/businesses. There are rare exceptions to the smoke-free policy, including certain but not all tobacco bars (cigar shops), owner-operated bars, bars with separately ventilated enclosed smoking rooms, and residential and day treatment health centers. For more information, contact the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. To report violations of the Smoke-Free Air Act, call 311.
