State controlled quarantine facilities in place
Prime Minister Scott Morrison today announced that travellers arriving in Australia after 11:59 PM on Saturday 28 March will now be quarantined in hotels at their port of arrival.
Following this announcement, Premier Peter Gutwein said “people who had been quarantined for 14 days at a mainland port would be quarantined for a further 14 days after entering Tasmania.”
Mr Gutwein went on to say that “any non-essential travellers who arrived in Australia after March 14 who then enter Tasmania would also have to be quarantined for 14 days in a state-controlled facility.”
A state-controlled facility will be established in three locations around Tasmania – one each in the North, North-West and the South.
