The possession of lighted tobacco in any form is a public nuisance and dangerous to public health and is hereby prohibited when such possession is in any indoor place used by or open to the public, public transportation or any indoor workplace, except where specifically allowed by law.
As used in this section, "indoor workplace" means any indoor place of employment or employment-type service for or at the request of another individual or individuals, or any public or private entity, whether part-time or full-time, and whether for compensation or not. Such services shall include, without limitation, any service performed by an owner, employee, independent contractor, agent, partner, proprietor, manager, officer, director, apprentice, trainee, associate, servant or volunteer. An indoor workplace includes work areas, employee lounges, rest rooms, conference rooms, classrooms, employee cafeterias, hallways, any other spaces used or visited by employees and all space between a floor and ceiling that is predominantly or totally enclosed by walls or windows, regardless of doors, doorways, open or closed windows, stairways or the like. The provisions of this section shall apply to such indoor workplace at any given time, whether or not work is being performed.
All buildings and other indoor properties owned or operated by this City shall be entirely nonsmoking.
All buildings, or portions thereof, owned or operated by a county or municipal government, at the discretion of the county or municipal governing body, may be designated as entirely nonsmoking.
The restrictions provided in this section shall not apply to standalone bars, standalone taverns and cigar bars as defined in 63 O.S. § 1-1522.
Smoking is permitted in the following space if the smoking space occupies the entire building or, if the smoking space shares space in the building with any indoor public places or indoor workplaces in which smoking is prohibited, is fully enclosed, exhausted directly to the outside with no air from the smoking space circulated to any nonsmoking area within the building, and under negative air pressure so that no smoke can drift or circulate into a nonsmoking area within the building when a door to an adjacent nonsmoking area is opened, and the air from the smoking space is not exhausted within 25 feet of any entrance, exit or air intake:
The room or rooms where licensed charitable bingo games are being operated, but only during the hours of operation of such games.
Up to 25% of the guest rooms at a hotel or other lodging establishment.
Retail tobacco stores predominantly engaged in the sale of tobacco products and accessories and in which the sale of other products is merely incidental and in which no food or beverage is sold or served for consumption on the premises.
Workplaces where only the owner or operator of the workplace, or the immediate family of the owner or operator, performs any work in the workplace, and the workplace has only incidental public access. "Incidental public access" means that a place of business has only an occasional person, who is not an employee, present at the business to transact business or make a delivery. It does not include businesses that depend on walk-in customers for any part of their business.
Workplaces occupied exclusively by one or more smokers, if the workplace has only incidental public access.
Private offices occupied exclusively by one or more smokers.
Workplaces within private residences, except that smoking shall not be allowed inside any private residence that is used as a licensed child-care facility during hours of operation.

A facility operated by a post or organization of past or present members of the Armed Forces of the United States which is exempt from taxation pursuant to Sections 501(c)(8), 501(c)(10) or 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Code, 26 U.S.C. §§ 501(c)(8), 501(c)(10) or 501(c)(19), when such facility is utilized exclusively by its members and their families and for the conduct of post or organization nonprofit operations, except during an event or activity which is open to the public.
Any outdoor seating area of a restaurant; provided smoking shall not be allowed within 25 feet of any exterior public doorway or any air intake of a restaurant.
A standalone bar, standalone tavern and cigar bar that derives more than 60% of its gross receipts, subject to verification by competent authority, from the sale of alcoholic beverages and low-point beer and no person under 21 years of age is admitted, except for members of a musical band employed or hired as provided in 37 O.S. § 537, Subsection B, Paragraph 2, and that is not located within, and does not share any common entryway or common indoor area with, any other enclosed indoor workplace, including a restaurant.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, until March 1, 2006, restaurants may have designated smoking and nonsmoking areas or may be designated as being a totally nonsmoking area. Beginning March 1, 2006, restaurants shall be totally nonsmoking or may provide nonsmoking areas and designated smoking rooms. Food and beverage may be served in such designated smoking rooms, which shall be in a location which is fully enclosed, directly exhausted to the outside, under negative air pressure so smoke cannot escape when a door is opened and no air is recirculated to nonsmoking areas of the building. No exhaust from such room shall be located within 25 feet of any entrance, exit or air intake. Such room shall be subject to verification for compliance with the provisions of this subsection by the State Department of Health.
The person who owns or operates a place where smoking or tobacco use is prohibited by law shall be responsible for posting a sign or decal, at least four inches by two inches in size, at each such entrance to the building indicating that the place is smoke-free or tobacco-free.
Responsibility for posting signs or decals shall be as follows:
In privately owned facilities, the owner or lessee, if a lessee is in possession of the facilities, shall be responsible;
In corporately owned facilities, the manager and/or supervisor of the facility involved shall be responsible; and
In publicly owned facilities, the manager and/or supervisor of the facility shall be responsible.

An educational facility may designate smoking areas outside the buildings for the use of adults during certain activities or functions, including, but not limited to, athletic contests; provided, however, that nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit educational facilities from having more restrictive policies regarding smoking and the use of other tobacco products in the buildings or on the grounds of the facility.
