Vaccination requirements

Last Updated: 29 Nov 2021 5:57pm

The Tasmanian Government has adopted recommendations from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) for certain workers to be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Public Health Direction, Vaccination requirements for certain workers, requires that a person covered under the Direction is sufficiently vaccinated against COVID-19. The deadline to have received a second dose for all workers is by 7 January 2022.

Dancing and drinking standing up limits at events and venues to be removed for fully-vaccinated

Limits on the number of people dancing and drinking standing up at events and venues will be removed from 6 December 2021, with the additional requirement that all patrons in the areas where these activities are undertaken must be fully vaccinated. All staff working in these areas must also be fully vaccinated from 15 December. The lifting of the limit only applies to pubs, clubs and events or areas of these locations where dancing and standing up drinking is the primary activity (ie pubs, night clubs and music events. It does not apply to restaurants). Current maximum density requirements for all venues and events continue to apply.

Further information will be provided as soon as it is finalised. Read more about proving your vaccination status using the Check in TAS app.
