(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Businesses covered by Oklahoma's new smoking ban can ``Breathe Easy.''

The state Department of Health is making free ``Breathe Easy'' decals available for workplaces covered by the state's rules covering second-hand smoke.

The new rules go into effect on September 1st for workplaces and most public places. State health officials say they'll improve the health of thousands of Oklahomans by reducing exposure to the harmful toxins found in second-hand smoke.

The four-inch by two-inch decals can be used at entrances to smoke-free places to meet all signage requirements of the new laws.

The decals are available through local county health departments across the state, or by calling 1-866-ONLY AIR. That's 1-866-665-9247.
