6 A.L. businesses go tobacco-free


The list of tobacco-free worksites in Albert Lea has spiked this year. On July 1, six places decided to officially kick the habit off their property. That brings the tally of tobacco-free worksites to nine…In 2009, Freeborn County had two tobacco-free worksites, Albert Lea Medical Center and Albert Lea Area Schools…However, the medical center, now called Mayo Clinic Health System, Albert Lea, changed its policy that year to mandate its workers be free of the scent of tobacco while on the clock or in uniform.
