MARTINSBURG, WV (AP) -
Beginning July 1, smokers in Berkeley County won't be able to light up in bars and private clubs.

Media outlets report that the Berkeley County Health Department's board voted Tuesday to expand the county's smoking ban to bars and private clubs.

However, board members rejected extending the ban to public parks, playgrounds, golf courses, parking lots and several other outdoor sites.

About 100 people who oppose banning smoking in bars and private held a rally in downtown Martinsburg on Tuesday afternoon and then attended the board's meeting. The crowd included business owners, employees and some customers.
