Does the self-isolation period apply to travel by Fly in Fly out (FIFO) workers

A Tasmanian resident FIFO worker who believes they fall into one of the Essential Traveller categories can apply via the Tasmanian Arrivals Form at the airport or online. See the Information for Fly-in-Fly-Out Workers.

Does the self-isolation period apply to travel commercial fishers and recreational boaters

Commercial fishers and recreational boaters do not need to self-isolate if they have not set foot interstate or overseas, and have not taken on crew from interstate and overseas in the past 14 days. See Coming to Tasmania for more information.

I’ve completed my period of self-isolation but my boss won’t let me return to work without clearance or a coronavirus test

The national approach is only to test people who are unwell AND have recently travelled overseas or interstate or been in contact with a person confirmed to have the virus. There is no value in testing people who are well.

The Department of Health does not issue medical certificates.

See Information for employers and Information about returning to your community.
