Atlantic City needs to be a

Clean, Safe and Healthy environment

for it's returning guests and employees

now more than ever

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate and advocate for Atlantic City Casinos to reopen and remain 100% Smoke Free to protect the health and safety of over 30,000 casino employees and all guests retuning to Atlantic City.

There is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke. 

Secondhand smoke is a top preventable cause of disease and death, killing 42,000 Americans every year. Secondhand smoke is also a risk factor for susceptibility to more severe COVID-19 symptoms because of the demonstrative impact it has on underlying health conditions including heart disease, diminished lung function, and associated risk of respiratory illnesses.

Now more than ever is a crucial time to address health and wellness. Smoke Free air protects the health and safety of all employees and guests including those who have respiratory, cardiovascular, and all those most susceptible to COVID-19.

 

Just as social distancing and hand washing help to prevent the spread of disease, eliminating second and thirdhand smoke is critical in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
