New household isolation rules that came into effect after midnight on Tuesday will not preclude Tasmanians from undertaking recreational activities like cycling and hunting.
That is unless these activities involve more than two people.
The government announced on Monday people would be required to stay at home for the next four weeks unless they needed to go to work, school, collect essential supplies, attend medical appointments or visit somebody on compassionate grounds.
Premier Peter Gutwein on Tuesday said essential supplies were categorised as food, pharmaceutical goods, and items needed for home maintenance or repairs.
He said people who had a secondary property would still be able to visit it for security or maintenance reasons but would need to stay at that address or their primary residence for the entire four weeks.
Mr Gutwein said people could still exercise and undertake recreational activities, like fishing, hunting and cycling, so long as no more than two people were involved.
He said care arrangements for children who have parents at different properties would not be altered.
Mr Gutwein said children could still attend child care.
According to government guidelines, grandparents can still see their grandchildren but extra care was needed to ensure the elderly did not come into contact with somebody who was unwell.
Mr Gutwein said national health advice was that people over the age of 65 with underlying health conditions as well as those over 70 years old should consider self-isolation.
"This is strong guidance not a mandatory position," he said.
Mr Gutwein said partners living in separate properties would be allowed to visit each other so long as one of them was not unwell.
"I never thought I'd be extending into people's love lives in this particular way but I'd say utilise commonsense," he said.
Public transport can be used if social distancing rules are adhered to and people will still be able to have their cars repaired or serviced over the four weeks, Mr Gutwein said.
People who are not at their homes for an acceptable reason over the month could face penalties of up to $16,800 or up to six months' jail time.
Lists of premises that must not be visited and services that must not be accessed over the state of emergency period have been published on government website: www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au.
Mr Gutwein said businesses who had not been forced to close but needed to go into hibernation for financial reasons could receive support from the federal government's $130 million support package.
Labor leader Rebecca White said a much stricter lockdown would clarify things for people.
"The messaging still needs to be clearer," she said.
"People should stay home unless they have a legitimate reason to leave the house.
"That reason isn't just to pop around the corner to see your friend.
"It is if you need to go to work or if you've got an essential errand you need to run."
