Tasmania is working with health officials across the country to ensure a consistent approach is being taken with regard to coronavirus says the state's public health body.
The virus, which originated in Wuhan, China, has killed more than 100 people and infected thousands, including cases confirmed in Australia.
There are no confirmed cases in Tasmania.
Director of Public Health Mark Veitch said screenings for the virus were taking place in Chinese departure points.
"And passengers are provided with additional information during their flight and again when they arrive in Australia's international airports," Dr Veitch said.
Dr Veitch said in Tasmania Public Health Services have provided information to a number of key stakeholders, including UTAS and the Chinese community.
"That information flow was important in a Hobart man coming forward at the weekend reporting he was feeling unwell after being in Wuhan, China, earlier this month," he said.
"The man followed the necessary protocols by phoning ahead to a GP who in turn notified health authorities and enabled him to be tested.
"Fortunately, the man tested negative for coronavirus and was released from hospital.
"We are continuing to work collaboratively with other states and the Australian government Department of Health, and ensuring GPs and our hospitals have access to the information they need."
More information on the virus can be found on the Australian government's Department of Health website.
