No Safe Level
There is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is responsible for thousands of deaths in the U.S. each year, and reducing exposure to secondhand smoke is an important way to improve the health of residents of Douglas County.
Clean Air Ordinance
The City of Lawrence passed a clean air ordinance in 2004 that prohibits smoking in enclosed public places. However, the health department remains committed to reducing second hand smoke exposure and continues to work with organizations like employers and apartment complexes to strengthen their tobacco policies to further reduce secondhand smoke exposure.
