On July 1, 2012 Indiana's new Smoke-Free Air law took effect. All public places and places of employment in Indiana must post one or more of five types of signs, depending on the nature of the business.

“State Law Prohibits Smoking Within 8 Feet of this Entrance.”

One sign must be posted at each public entrance to a public place or a place of employment.

“Cigarette Smoking is Prohibited.”

Two or more signs must be posted inside a cigar bar that allows smoking of tobacco products (other than cigarettes).

One sign must be posted inside a cigar specialty store that allows smoking of tobacco products (other than cigarettes).

“WARNING: Smoking Is Allowed In This Establishment.”
Two or more signs must be posted inside an establishment exempt from the state smoking ban.

“Smoking Is Prohibited by State Law.”

Two or more signs must be posted inside an establishment not exempt from the state smoking ban.

“Smoking Is Prohibited by This Restaurant.”

A restaurant must post a conspicuous sign at each entrance to the restaurant informing the public that smoking is prohibited in the restaurant.
