Delaware County will become a smoke-free environment as early as July. The county commissioners recently unanimously approved the banning of smoking in all public buildings. The decision includes restraints and taverns.

The decision was made after listening to cancer survivors, bar owners and a person dying from second-hand smoke. It will go in effect in 29 days. Electronic cigarettes were removed from the ban moments before the vote.
