The Housing Authority, which assists San Luis Obispo County residents find and maintain long- term, affordable housing, implemented the new rule Jan. 1.

The tobacco-free policy is intended to protect residents in multi-unit housing from the adverse health effects of tobacco exposure, according to a press release. The new rule is now included in the lease agreements for the properties maintained by the Housing Authority.
