The Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act prohibits smoking in most indoor places of employment. Exemptions include casinos and bars that only allow entrance to those 21 and over.

Smoking rates have been decreasing for decades, and the demand for smoke-free locations has increased. Visitors and new/current residents of Washoe County have asked for information on places that are smoke-free. Get Healthy Washoe is happy to provide tools to easily find smoke-free lodging and hangout spots.
