Is it still against code to install a ceiling fan in a bathroom?

I found this on the net from 2014. Is it still true?

From 2014: "no cord-connected, hanging, pendant, lighting track or suspended ceiling paddle fan lighting fixture shall be located in an area within 8 feet vertically and 3 feet horizontally from the tub rim or shower stall threshold."

It's not against code but there are some strict guidlines to follow.
It takes a rather large bathroom to put a ceiling fan in.

410.10(D) Bathtub and Shower Areas. No parts of cord connected
luminaries, chain-, cable-, or cord-suspended luminaries,
lighting track, pendants, or ceiling-suspended (paddle)
fans shall be located within a zone measured 900 mm (3 ft)
horizontally and 2.5 m (8 ft) vertically from the top of the
bathtub rim or shower stall threshold. This zone is all encompassing
and includes the space directly over the tub or shower
stall. Luminaries located within the actual outside dimension
of the bathtub or shower to a height of 2.5 m (8 ft) vertically
from the top of the bathtub rim or shower threshold shall be
marked for damp locations, or marked for wet locations where
subject to shower spray.
