"Certainly, I am very pleased it has come out now," said Dr. William Mercer, medical director of the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department.
It states the only way to protect nonsmokers from the dangerous chemicals in secondhand smoke is to eliminate smoking indoors , which was the goal of the Wheeling-Ohio County Clean Indoor Air Regulation, according to Mercer.
However, Mercer said he believes this report is going to spur more counties in West Virginia , as well as more states in the nation , to enact strict clean indoor air regulations to cut down on the amount of secondhand smoke to which people are exposed.
"What you are going to see from this, with it coming from the federal government, is a lot of counties in West Virginia making regulations similar to ours," Mercer said, adding that he believes the state of Ohio may see enough support as a result of this report to be able to pass a statewide regulation.
"Here in Ohio County, it has been a year.We have had our regulation in place for one year," Mercer said."I feel it is working very well, and we will continue to see it improve. ... Before we had 75 percent compliance, and over the past several weeks, I have been meeting with the individual bar owners who were previously not in compliance."Mercer pointed out many of these bar owners now say they are going to comply, and Mercer believes the county will reach a more than 90 percent compliance rate.

Restrictions Lifted At Nursing Homes - News [cached]
Wheeling Hospital Health Director Dr. William Mercer said he authorized lifting the restrictions because no new cases were reported in the last 48 hours.
Peterson officials said the second floor restriction was lifted, but restrictions on the first floor will remain in place because there are still four active norovirus cases.
More than 130 people were sickened during the outbreak which started in early December.
Mercer said more dangerous illnesses could be on the way.
"Influenza is coming.That could be the next that comes and that will be worse.So if anybody learned anything from this, it's get your flu shots," Mercer said.
