Air Quality Report Shows Smoke-Free Ordinance in Shreveport Working; Indoor Air Quality Improves in First 100 Days of Smoke-free Ordinance

Shreveport, LA – November 9, 2021 – Air quality in Shreveport bars and casinos has improved since the implementation of a smoke-free indoor air ordinance in August, according to a report by the Smoke-free Louisiana Coalition. November 9th is the 100th day of the local ordinance which supporters have promoted as an initial benchmark for assessing the success of the program.

The study by Dr. Robert McMillen, a nationally-known expert on air quality, shows that prior to implementation of the ordinance, the air quality in the Shreveport casinos had exceeded the EPA’s threshold for good air.

However, after passage of the ordinance, the “study demonstrates that employees and patrons in Shreveport’s casinos are no longer exposed to harmful levels of indoor air pollution resulting from indoor smoking.”

Dr. McMillen serves as Principal Investigator for the Surveillance and Evaluation Services grant for the Mississippi State Department of Health’s Office of Tobacco Control. In his conclusion, Dr. McMillen writes, “A comprehensive smoke-free air policy that prohibits smoking in all indoor places is the only proven means to eliminate this exposure to secondhand smoke. This type of policy will result in improved quality of life and health outcomes for Shreveport workers and residents.”

“The numbers don’t lie. This life-saving measure is receiving rave reviews from employees and customers of local bars and casinos, elected officials, health care professionals, and media across the country,” says Raegan Carter, a Louisiana consultant for American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation (ANRF).
