Letter to the Editor

No Smoking on Beaches

Dear Editor,

The June 27, 2019 Winthrop Sun Transcript front-page article,  â€œLocal Smoking Regulations to be Tested”, incorrectly cites the town’s regulation, effective May 1, 2019.


• Smoking is prohibited on all Town beaches, not just Yirrell and Donovan

• Vaping is prohibited wherever smoking is prohibited

• Smoking is prohibited within 25 feet of an entrance to municipal buildings accessible to the public

• Smoking is prohibited in bus shelters and waiting areas

• The fine is $25 for each  violation by a person

Thank you.

The Winthrop Board of Health
