Ban extended to heated tobacco products and other vaping devices.
The Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee announced that smoking will not be permitted at any of the Olympic or Paralympic venues for the duration of the Games. The ban will be extended to heated tobacco products and other vaping devices.
Tokyo 2020 has decided to adopt a stricter non-smoking policy to protect the health and safety of athletes, spectators and officials and will ban smoking in indoor venues, outdoor venues and in venues’ secure perimeters operated by Tokyo 2020.
An amendment to Japan’s Health Promotion Law will be fully enacted on 1 April 2020, together with Tokyo’s new regulations to reduce the incidence of passive smoking.
More details of the venues are available on Tokyo 2020’s official website.
