SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The University of Utah has announced a hard enforcement of their campus-wide tobacco-free policy, including public events and football games.
The Deseret News reports the rule, which banned smoking for anyone on campus in May 2018, will be fully enforced at university-owned properties like hospitals and parking lots.
Football fans attending games at Rice-Eccles Stadium will not be permitted re-entry if they leave. There will be no designated smoking area at the stadium.
A student-led initiative helped craft the current policy that encourages people not to use smoking products like electronic cigarettes and vape pens on school property.
The university joins more than 1,800 colleges and universities throughout the country that have also adopted “no smoking” policies.
University officials have said the policy is intended to promote healthy lifestyles.
