Berkeley County health officials are considering extending the county's smoking ban to more places.
The proposed expansion would ban smoking in bars, private clubs and public places such as parks, including electronic cigarettes.
The existing policy bans smoking in restaurants and most work places. Fraternal organizations and bars are exempt.
Last week, about 20 bar owners and their employees protested against the proposal at the building where the health board meets.
Twenty-four of West Virginia's 55 counties have become smoke free.
