Sweden moves to ban outdoor smoking

Sweden moves to ban outdoor smoking

Sweden on December 12, 2018 voted 142-120 to ban outdoor smoking in certain public places, including playgrounds and train station platforms. According to the new law, the goal is to make the Scandinavian country smoke-free by 2025.

The Riksdagen, national legislature and the supreme decision-making body, extended the smoking ban as of July 1, 2019. Smoking in outdoor restaurants and entrances to booths for smokers will also be banned.

In Sweden, smoking is currently allowed in designated smoking areas in most workplaces and public places.

Official figures show only 11 percent of the Swedish population of 10 million smoked daily in 2016, with about 10 percent smoking occasionally.

Sweden had banned smoking in bars and restaurants in May 2005.
