It can be assumed that those who vape can still enjoy their e-cigarettes similar to smokers, as long as they stay 3 meters (10 feet) away from the restaurant they are patronizing.

However, at the moment, the status of restaurants that sell shisha as part of their attraction is yet to be determined. Most probably, these restaurants need to stop selling shisha altogether.

This latest announcement, similar to the smoking ban, has prompted mixed reactions among the netizens. Some applauded the ban, while some needed a more detailed explanation on it.
