[anvplayer video=”5067502″ station=”998132″]

A new smoke-free policy just started in Washington County on Monday.

No smoking is allowed now on any county owned property, including parks.

Smoking indoors or in cars has been and continues to be banned.

The goal is to eliminate exposure to second hand smoke and vapor caused by e-cigarettes.

The new policy applies to all county employees, elected officials and the public.

People can still smoke when they’re not on county property.
