The public health community is joining forces behind the City of Houston No Smoking Ordinance 2006-1054. This comprehensive revision of the City of Houston Smoking Ordinance prohibits smoking in enclosed public spaces, enclosed workplaces, building entrances and selected outdoor areas and public facilities. The ordinance is momentous for our city as it uses policy to create safe and healthy environments for Houstonians.
In the month of November, we celebrate the successes of the ordinance, raise awareness of smoke and tobacco-free environments and promote cessation resources to help smokers quit. Join us online during the nation wide observance, Great American Smoke Out, for our annual social media campaign!
