The Clean Indoor Air Regulation was first enacted in 2003 and prohibits smoking in public and private worksites and enclosed public places, such as stores, public buildings, reception areas and public transportation.
The Clean Indoor Air Regulation has been amended to include the use of electronic nicotine delivery systems, e-cigarettes or similar devices. These devices will no longer be allowed in indoor public areas in Washtenaw County that are already smoke free. The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners approved changes to the Washtenaw County Clean Indoor Air Regulation in March, and the changes take effect June 18, 2015. The amendment also extends the regulation to Washtenaw County Parks for the first time.
The Michigan Tobacco Quitline (800-QUIT NOW or 800-784-8669) helps current smokers access approved quit aids, counseling and other resources. Support is available seven days per week and in multiple languages.
