Stage Two restrictions begin to ease

Peter Gutwein,Premier

Tasmanians have done an outstanding job controlling coronavirus, enabling the easing of stage two restrictions to be brought forward to today at 3pm.

With the Public Health Direction now finalised, the full details of what Tasmanians can now safely enjoy are outlined as follows:

  • 10 visitors to residential premises
  • 20 at gatherings
  • 20 attendees at staffed gyms and other indoor sport facilities
  • Groups of 20 in outdoor sporting activities and boot camps/personal training
  • 20 attendees per pool
  • 20 attendees at community facilities
  • 20 attendees in each discrete area of libraries
  • 20 attendees at auction premises and real estate services
  • 20 attendees at outdoor amusement parks, arcades, play centres or similar if primarily an outdoor space
  • 40 attendees in hospitality venues
  • 40 people at religious services and weddings
  • 40 attendees per cinema
  • 40 attendees at concert venues, theatres, arenas, auditoriums, with an additional number of 20 people specified for performers and support staff not including front of house
  • 40 attendees at zoos
  • 50 people at funerals
  • 80 attendees at museums, national institutions, historic sites and galleries
  • Beauty services open and maximum density limits apply
  • Markets continue to be open for fresh food and produce only
  • Racing to resume on 13 June, with Keno and betting services able to recommence from 3pm 5 June
  • Accommodation open and restrictions on boating/national parks and reserves lifted
  • The State Controller has removed the travel restrictions for the Bass Strait Islands, and there will be no requirement to quarantine for people travelling to the islands from mainland Tasmania. Importantly, visitors from interstate will be subject to the same quarantine requirements as they would be elsewhere in Tasmania.

These numbers are subject to the density requirements to be satisfied, with the exception being residential premises.

The Stay at Home order will be officially revoked at 3pm today.

I thank all Tasmanians sincerely for their continued cooperation and compassion.

Please, remember to adhere to the restrictions in place – it serves us well as we look towards the review of stage three in several weeks.

Stay safe, download the COVIDSafe App to assist with tracing efforts, practice good hygiene and remember to get tested if you have mild symptoms.

I am sure all Tasmanians are looking forward to the long weekend. Let’s enjoy our beautiful state.
