Can you smoke in the pub in SA?

I don't know what the current legislation is exactly, but most places used to have smoking and non smoking sections, with the smoking sections not allowed to be  more than a certain % (way less than 50%)...in our local pubs the non smoking sections are totally empty while the smoking section is full.

I see restaurants don't have smoking sections anymore...only small smoking rooms...It has become a bit absurd...glad I don't have to deal with the hassle anymore.

I think it is banned totally, but on the other hand I do drink with a couple of high ranking cops

Have to go outside here and then move away from the entrance. Been like that for sometime now. 

I used to smoke cigars and the cigarette smoke at pubs never bothered me but when we go to Bali, Thailand etc you can smoke where you like my initial reaction is outrage when someone fires up a gasper nearby (then I remember where I am).

Always handy to be on good terms with the law. Do they tip you off as to where the booze buses might be?

Mixed bag over here - you can't go surfing, fishing or play golf in Victoria but you can everywhere else.

In Western Australia where I am we have closed (hard) borders with other states and internally between regions - you need a valid reason to be crossing a border (essential worker or medical). If you fly in from overseas they lock you in a hotel room for 14 days at the taxpayers expense and you have to be tested at least twice. We have had one new case in eight days and have 15 active cases in total so I think it is time to get cracking and try and salvage the economy

I think it's absolutely BS. My wife and I don't go out to eat anymore since they started with this nonsense.

If she wants a smoke she has to wander off into the parking lot or 'smoking room', while I sit like an fool at the table and wait for her to get back.

Been doing that for years with my hubbie and child. Now I sit in the smoking area such as open verandah etc otherwise I spend half the night on my own. 

Going back to work at the office tomorrow. Been working at home full time since 20 March - good thing is now I get my temp measured daily haha...and any vitamin injections I require free of charge...has its advantages LOL...as for the cigs...well a contact I asked said he would ask some or other Polices Station Commander to get 6 cartons to be shared between us...ja well no fine...
