Effective July 1, 2005, the Georgia Smokefree Air Act prohibits smoking inside most public areas and outlines specific guidelines for allowing smoking in and around establishments that serve the public. However, the act does allow for more restrictive local laws, rules and regulations that are currently in place or may be passed in the future. Smoking is prohibited in all enclosed areas within places of employment unless authorized in the code section 31-12A-6. Examples include: restaurants & bars, common work areas, restrooms, cafeterias, hallways, and stairs.
