The crew of all recreational vessels arriving in Tasmanian waters from interstate must contact the Tasmanian Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 immediately on arrival, before anyone disembarks from the vessel.

Commercial fishers and recreational boaters will not need to self-isolate if they have not set foot interstate or overseas and have not taken on crew from interstate or overseas that day or in the previous 14 days.
