Adams County is a tobacco-free/nicotine-free workplace and property. While the courthouse has been tobacco-free for many years, the updated policy expands the prohibited items to tobacco-like products and the use on county-owned property at any time is strictly prohibited. Prohibition includes all county-owned buildings, all areas maintained by Adams County including sidewalks of county-owned property and all vehicles owned or leased by Adams County.
There are no designated smoking areas within any Adams County owned location or on any county-owned grounds. Ash receptacles will not be available on these properties. All Adams County employees while representing the county shall not use tobacco or nicotine products.
This new policy applies to all employees, visitors, workers, volunteers, or any person coming on county-owned grounds or to any Adams County owned facilities.
