Expansion of No Smoking Area in San Francisco
The city government of San Francisco has passed the anti-smoking legislation in April 2010 on expansion of designated no smoking areas to protect people from secondhand smoke.
Farmers markets, common areas in apartment buildings and multi-unit residences, 15 feet from the building entrances and exits, service waiting lines as well as outdoor dining areas have been designated into no smoking areas with effect from 24 October 2010.
All restaurants have been required to allocate particular no smoking signage at each entrance and enforce the smoking ban. Citation would be issued once the restaurant owner did not obey the ordinance.
