Tobacco-Free Assistance is available      for Lincoln and Lancaster County Businesses and Schools

In Lancaster County, all employees are protected from secondhand smoke inside their workplace either by the Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act or the Lincoln Smoking Regulation Act.

All K-12 public schools in Lancaster County have a tobacco-free campus. Many businesses are also choosing to make their entire campus tobacco-free (including e-cigarettes) and extending this policy to cover business vehicles.

If you would like FREE assistance developing, updating, or implementing your tobacco-free campus policy, please contact us at info@tobaccofreelancastercounty.org.

Local Health Agencies Adopt Tobacco-Free Campus Policy

St. Monica’s, CenterPointe and The Bridge Behavioral Health rehabilitation centers adopted a tobacco-free campus policy and they highlighted their experiences on the video Tobacco-Free Campuses in Behavioral Health Settings.

In April 2015, these three behavioral health agencies received a Community Public Health Award from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Board of Health for adopting a tobacco-free campus policy.  View their award ceremony.

TFLC recognizes those businesses that have chosen to make their entire campus smoke/tobacco-free.
