City gears up for no-smoking law

THE Shanghai Patriotic Health Campaign Commission will carry out checks on premises after the local anti-smoking law comes into force on March 1, it said yesterday.

And a campaign to install anti-smoking signs will be carried out next month in places where smoking is to be banned, it said.

By November last year, 11,213 facilities had put up 150,000 no-smoking signs.

In early March, the commission will cooperate with other government departments to supervise the anti-smoking measures and distribute no-smoking signs.

Facilities where smoking is banned must post no-smoking signs, remove ashtrays and persuade smokers to stop. Those failing to do so will face fines of up to 30,000 yuan (US$4,392).

Meanwhile, the commission is also to issue waist measuring tapes this year in a bid to improve city residents' health.
