The Smoke-free Illinois Act protects the public from the effects of exposure to tobacco smoke by prohibiting smoking in:

Indoor public places;
Places of employment;
Within 15 feet of any entrance, exit, windows that open, or ventilation intake of a public place or place of employment.

Public places and places of employment include, but are not limited to, restaurants, bars, bowling alleys, private clubs, and gaming facilities.

Smoking is also prohibited in public convey- ances, such as taxis, buses, shuttles, and any vehicle owned, leased, or operated by the State of Illinois or a political subdivision of the State of Illinois.

The Smoke-free Illinois Act includes require- ments for signage, how to lodge a com- plaint, the enforcement process, and how fines will be determined for violations.

Local ordinances may have additional regu- lations where smoking is prohibited. To learn more about additional regulations in your area, please contact the Champaign- Urbana Public Health District (C-UPHD).
