This communication is to inform you that the Smoke-free Illinois website is currently active. There are variety of materials available that will be helpful to the general public. Sample signs are available at the Web site. As stated in the e-mail from Tom Schafer sent 12/12/07:
"The act simply says the signs must include the international no-smoking symbol. The rules had proposed additional requirements for the sign, including its size and the inclusion of the Department's toll-free Complaint Line and Web site. Without rules approval, the Department's proposal for signs is not a requirement, but something we would still recommended."
The Web site is available at: http://www.smoke-free.illinois.gov/
Due to the Smoke-Free Illinois Act, as of January 1, 2008, smoking is prohibited in nearly all public places including, but not limited to, schools, restaurants, private clubs, offices, bowling alleys, bars/taverns, and shopping centers.
Complaints can be submitted online at the Smoke-Free Illinois website or by contacting the Crawford County Health Department if the complaint involves a Crawford County establishment..
