Smoke-Free Healthcare Campuses
WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON?
Plumas County Courthouse Annex
The last time the Plumas County Facilities smoke-free policy was updated was in 1994. While this old policy does include State laws, it doesn't have any language about electronic smoking devices and the language is extremely outdated.
