Nova Scotia inspectors completed nearly 2,000 inspections in December to enforce new regulations banning smoking in public places and workplaces.

Inspectors from the departments of Health Promotion and Protection, Agriculture and Environment and Labour issued six verbal warnings and two written warnings. No charges have been laid under the Smoke-Free Places Act to date.

The inspections included licensed establishments, restaurants, indoor workplaces and public spaces.
