Quarantine applies to people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 and are at a higher-risk of being infected or passing on the virus. Quarantine means you must stay away from others and the wider community to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to determine if you may be unwell.

In Tasmania, you will be required to quarantine if:

  • in the 14 days before arriving in Tasmania you spent time in a medium or high-risk area, or
  • you attended a medium or high-risk premise (also known as an exposure site) at the specified dates and times, or
  • you are a close or casual contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case.

Depending on the risk, you will be required to quarantine at either a government-managed quarantine facility (fees may apply) or a suitable premises for 14 days.

Information on the types of quarantine and tips on dealing with quarantine is available on the COVID-19 quarantine page.
