Travelers Will Soon Find It Easier To Avoid Secondhand Smoke In Airports

If you’re a non-smoker, you’ve likely found yourself immersed in secondhand smoke from time to time. While smoke-free public spaces are typically the norm, cigarettes are still allowed in a handful of designated areas within many airports – including smoking lounges. As new ordinances and smoking-related laws continue to gain steam, though, non-smoking airport visitors will soon find it easier to avoid exposure to secondhand smoke.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
