Smoke Free Parks

A decision for Smoke Free Parks in San Marcos was passed in January 2019

Smoke Free Outdoor Dining 

The Vista Community Clinic Tobacco Control Program works to establish smoke-free outdoor dining patios across North County San Diego. Currently, 120 municipalities across California have passed ordinances for smoke-free patios, including Chula Vista, El Cajon, National City, Del Mar, Encinitas, Coronado, Solana Beach, Carlsbad and Oceanside in San Diego County.

Employees of establishments with outdoor patios – While you may not smoke at your favorite restaurants and have the choice to leave or sit somewhere else if other people do, employees of those restaurants don’t have that choice. Choosing to have smoke-free outdoor patios is not only good for patrons but also employees!
