Quarantine requirements when returning from mainland Tasmania

Any resident returning to King Island from mainland Tasmania is required to quarantine for 14 days, from contact with all persons other than persons with whom they ordinarily reside.

While the state government does not require other household members to quarantine with you, it is in the Island’s best interest for all household members to do so and Council asks that you voluntarily comply.

Council has received confirmation from the State Controller that returning residents can be asked to:

  • Voluntarily isolate the whole household for 14 days; or
  • Where this is not possible, accept personal self isolation, at Council’s cost, in an agreed location eg a motel.

If you are able to isolate the whole household, PLEASE NOTE: no member of the household will be able to leave your primary place of residence for 14 days or have visitors. To discuss personal self isolation in a Council funded facility, please call Robyn Barwick on 6462 9000.
