Western Australian restrictions to be lifted

28 Apr 2021

Dr Mark Veitch, Director of Public Health

From 5pm today, Tasmanian Government restrictions specific to the cases identified in Western Australia will be lifted.

People currently in hotel or home quarantine will be contacted to notify them when they can move freely in Tasmania from 5pm. Any person who has been informed by Public Health that they need to receive a negative test result before leaving quarantine need to complete this requirement before they are permitted to leave.

Quarantine-free travel registered through the Tas e-Travel system will be restored for anyone wishing to travel to or from Western Australia.

Seven premises in Western Australia remain designated by Tasmania as high-risk premises until 14 days after they last posed a risk. People who attended these premises at the specific times remain in quarantine in Western Australia. They will not be permitted to travel to Tasmania until their quarantine is complete.
