British Virgin Islands stamps out smoking

A ban on smoking in public places has been instituted in the British Virgin Islands, although smokers have a six-month grace period to adjust to the ban.

The measure prohibits smoking in enclosed public spaces, including bars and restaurants and within 50 feet of their entrances.

The B.V.I. joins Puerto Rico, where a smoking ban is scheduled to take effect in March, and Bermuda, which began enforcing its ban in October.

A similar measure also is expected to pass in the Cayman Islands very soon.
