Nine Victorian sites declared a high risk for COVID-19

Public Health and Government authorities are continuing to monitor the ongoing number of COVID-19 cases in New South Wales and Victoria.

In response to further cases in Victoria, Public Health has identified nine high-risk sites, meaning anyone who attended those premises cannot come to Tasmania.
These include:

If you have been at any of these sites at the specified times, please immediately contact the Tasmanian Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 for further advice. Locations and restrictions will be reviewed regularly, based on advice from Victorian authorities.

Even if you weren’t at those sites at those times, or the other high and medium risk settings listed on the Coronavirus Tasmania website, we ask everyone who has been in Victoria or NSW within 14 days of their arrival here to continue to constantly monitor the sites and locations that are being identified and updated on the Victorian and New South Wales Health Department websites:

“We have consistently followed expert Public Health advice to keep Tasmanians safe. This has worked and we will continue to do so.” Said Minister for Health, Sarah Courtney

“Our Public Health officials are continuing to monitor the situation in Victoria and NSW, and won’t hesitate to make any necessary changes to current restrictions in order to protect the health and safety of Tasmanians.”

At this stage, about 70 per cent of the NSW population cannot travel to Tasmania, or must quarantine if they do so.
“I thank everyone for their ongoing vigilance and encourage Tasmanians to continue acting responsibly to keep our community safe.”
