According to reports, DOH Secretary Paulyn Ubial already submitted the executive order to the President for signature, and was expected to get inked this October.

The draft is a replica of Davao City’s no smoking policy implemented by Duterte during his time as a Mayor.

“There will be no smoking in public places anymore, whether indoor or outdoor. Parks, bus stations, and even in vehicles. All these are considered public places,” Ubial said.
