Is there a law about smoking within a certain distance of a public doorway? Does it have to be posted?

Both the state and local smoking ordinances, which were approved in July 2010, prohibit smoking in the access points of buildings where indoor smoking is prohibited by law. Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city, said an ‘access point’ is defined as the area within a 10-foot radius of any open or closed doorway, open window or air intake into a building. Neither the state nor local law requires signage to be posted.
