Catalonia is studying a ban on smoking on bar terraces, awnings and school driveways

Date: October 2, 2022 Time: 19:20:50

The Generalitat de Catalunya is preparing regulations to ensure that bar terraces are non-smoking. This was announced by Health Minister Josep Maria Argimon, who also intends to add bar awnings and school entrances and exits to the ban.

“We have to give a boost,” the minister said in an interview with Els Matins on TV3, speaking about anti-smoking measures. “Whenever a smoking ban is passed, people tend to quit smoking,” Argimon added.

While it is true that since the passage of the 2011 anti-smoking law (which banned smoking in enclosed public places) the number of smokers in Catalonia has decreased, this has happened slowly. According to the Catalan Health Survey, in 2021, 22.6% of the population are smokers, 7% less than 10 years ago.
