Ohio County, WV Makes Changes To Smoking Ban

Today, the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Board made changes to the smoking ban in Ohio County by a 4-2 margin with 7 members not doing their job and opting not to attend the vote.

Despite a public outcry the Health Board chose to ignore the freedom of its residents and moved forward to ban smoking in public outdoor areas as well as private decks and porches where food is served. They have also included outdoor festivals including the Upper Ohio Valley Italian Fest, Blues Fest and Mountaineer Brew Fest.

The new measure provides an exemption for Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack and other gambling establishments.
