President Rodrigo Duterte signed the executive order (EO) on a nationwide ban on smoking in all public places. EO 26 sets strict guidelines on designated smoking areas and bans them altogether in schools, including universities, and recreational facilities for minors. Designated smoking areas or DSAs are defined in the EO, obtained by Rappler, as an "an area of a building or conveyance where smoking may be allowed, which may be in an open space or separate area with proper ventilation." Duterte had made his campaign vow to impose a nationwide smoking ban similar to what has long been implemented in Davao City, where he served as mayor for over two decades. Duterte had shunned criticism to his policy, especially those coming from the tobacco industry.
