CLAYTON (KMOX) – Nursing homes could soon become exempt from St. Louis County’s smoking ban.

Council members gave first-round approval to a measure last night which would only require that facilities abide by state and federal laws.

At the moment, smoking is only allowed in certain rooms.

If the proposed change is finally approved next week, smoking would be also permitted in other, designated areas of the homes.
