State: Smoking banned in all hotel rooms

Back to Front Page





The Indiana State Department of Health contacted the Chesterton Tribune on Friday to make the clarification in last week’s article “Local groups spread the word on new state antismoking rules" that smoking will not be permitted in any hotel or motel guest rooms under the state’s new smoking ban.

Originally, the law considered allowing smoking in designated smoking rooms but opted to enforce a ban on all rooms in the final version. Hotels and motels are treated like all other businesses not exempt from the ban and smoking is not allowed within eight feet of their entrances.
