Effective October 1, 2017, the use of tobacco by CCNR employees, residents and visitors are  prohibited in, on all CCNR owned or leased buildings, grounds, parking lots, ramps, plazas, owned or leased vehicles and sidewalks adjacent to CCNR properties.  Employees may not use tobacco products while on paid time.  Upon request, cessation information and assistance shall be provided to residents, employees, students, volunteers and medical staff.

This policy has been shared with all employees, residents, and is for visitors viewing in the lobby. 

The Tobacco Free Partnership of Dixie County will be working with CCNR on signage for the Center and would like to thank the administration at the CCNR for working so efficiently to adopt this policy.  The residents and visitors will be thankful for your commitment to a safe, clean and healthy environment.
