The nationwide smoking ban will take effect on July 22, according to a notice by the Department of Health (DOH).

The DOH also clarified that it was not on Saturday, July 15, but on July 22 the start of a strict smoking ban nationwide.

Health Assistant Secretary Eric Tayag made the clarification after the report released that the national smoking ban is effective, tomorrow.

Tayag said May 16, President Rodrigo Duterte signed the order so it would be effective tomorrow.

However, in accordance with the Executive Order, it will be effective within 60 days after the publication.

“Nang chineck namin ito, na-publish noong May 23. Pag nagka-ganoon, sa isang Sabado pa (Hulyo 22), ii-implement, pero pwede na silang mag-practice,” ayon kay Tayag.

In accordance with Executive Order 26, smoking is strictly prohibited in public places such as schools, hospitals, clinics, food preparation areas and fire hazard areas.

A fine of P100,000 and imprisonment for six months will be violated.
