CHICAGO IS joining New York and other cities in banning smoking in most public places (JAMA 1988;259:2809-2810). The Windy City's new ordinance bans smoking in:
taxis, service lines such as for groceries, public restrooms, polling places, meeting rooms, and assembly halls.
at least half the waiting areas of airports and train and bus stations.
any workplace or area so designated by an employer (who must advise all employees of that policy).
areas designated by employees.
Chicago's ordinance states that, in case of disputes, the rights or concerns of a nonsmoker prevail over those of a smoker.—by
