On Thursday, August 26th, the Savannah City Council will VOTE TO APPROVE the proposed smoke-free air ordinance – at least we hope they will! Healthy Savannah needs YOU to help pass this important ordinance which will ensure the right to breathe smoke-free air in our community.
The vote will be held at 2:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall. Please plan to attend and support the City Council as they enact this significant health policy measure.
The ordinance makes ALL workplaces smoke-free including the current exceptions to Georgia’s smoke-free law:
Outdoor eating areas in restaurants
All bars and restaurants
Long-term care facilities
Private and semi-private rooms in health care facilities
Retail tobacco stores
Distances 10 feet from the entrance to any public building
Call and send messages of support to the Mayor and Aldermen. Please ask them to support the ordinance and to make certain outdoor eating areas are 100% smoke-free!
