Nevada Smoking: What you need to know

The Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act prohibits smoking tobacco in any form in most public places and in all indoor public and private places of employment, with some exceptions. Included in the ban are government buildings, healthcare facilities, childcare facilities, public and private schools and school property, the University of Nevada and Nevada Community College campuses, retail stores and malls, grocery and convenience stories, movie theaters and video arcades, and indoor areas of restaurants and their kitchens(NV Rev. Stat. Sec. 202.2483et seq.).

Childcare, adultcare, and healthcare businesses in private homes are included in the ban. Home offices in private residences are exempt.

Nothing prohibits the owners of establishments not covered under the Act from declaring the facility entirely smoke-free.

Exemptions. Exempt from the Act are hotels and motels retail tobacco stores, strip clubs and brothels, and casino gaming floors where minors are banned.

In 2011, the state Legislature amended the Act to allow smoking in free-standing bars, taverns, and saloons that prohibit patrons under 21 years of age. These businesses are also allowed to serve food made on the premises.

Enforcement. Authority for enforcing provisions of the Act and issuing citations rests with local health authorities, sheriffs and their deputies, and law enforcement agencies, which may carry out unannounced inspections.

Signage. "No Smoking" signs or the international No Smoking symbols must be posted at every entrance to a facility covered under the Act. Business owners who do not comply may be fined.
