Tasmanians have done an outstanding job to curb the spread of coronavirus in our State, and with our control measures working well, we are bringing forward the easing of Stage Two restrictions.
This decision is based on Public Health advice, ensuring we continue to put Tasmanians’ health and safety first and foremost as we continue our road to recovery.
Effective from 3pm Friday 5 June 2020, Tasmanians will be able to travel across the state, stay overnight, enjoy their shacks and camping spots once again, as well as launch their boats outside of their municipality. More businesses will open, including beauty services and gyms, while public gathering numbers will increase to 20 people, with funerals to 50 people.
Gatherings of up to 40 patrons for seated table service, including dining and drinks, can occur in cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs where sufficient space and settings allow.
Restrictions to ease, include:
We will continue to actively monitor the situation and take advice from Public Health as we continue a sensible and safe recovery glide path. A formal review for easing Stage 3 restrictions will occur in mid to late June.
Please remember to observe the latest restrictions in place, to practice good hygiene , download the COVID-Safe App to help with tracing efforts and get tested if you’re unwell.
