Posters to remind bar patrons of smoke-free law

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC)  -  Breatheasy Savannah volunteers will be distributing "Ireland is Smokefree and So Are We" posters to Savannah bars on Tuesday night.

The posters serve as a reminder that Savannah's bars are smoke-free.

Savannah's City Council passed an ordinance in August 2010 to close the loopholes in Georgia's smoke-free laws by making all workplaces smoke-free including bars and outdoor service areas of restaurants. The measure went into effect Jan. 1.

Parade grandstand viewing areas and queue lines are also smoke-free, according to Breatheasy Savannah.

To report a violation call 311.
