Policing of compliance with Tasmania's coronavirus restrictions will be stepped up.
Premier Peter Gutwein said it was "not good enough" to hear reports of campers and trailers heading to the East Coast for the Easter break.

He said the next five days until Tuesday were critical.
"To be frank - the gloves come off," Mr Gutwein said.
"We are going to police this, the period of education is over.
"Today we will be putting helicopters up. There will be eyes in the sky."
Mr Gutwein said people who broke the rules would be charged and face a fine up to $16,800 and six months in jail.
He said police would be paying special attention to the North-West Coast as an investigation into an outbreak of coronavirus at the North West Regional Hospital continues.
"The North-West Coast will effectively be in lockdown," Mr Gutwein said.
"The word blitz would be fair to describe what will happen today and over the coming days."

Tasmania Police Acting Assistant Commissioner Jo Stolp said police would be using significant resources to target holiday hotspots over the Easter break.
"Our message to everyone is to please stay home. Don't go to your shacks - you will be bringing unnecessary risk to those small communities such as the East Coast, Bridport, Tasman Peninsula, the Central Highlands, West Coast and Bruny Island," Acting Assistant Commissioner Stolp said.
"Unless it's essential, don't travel outside the municipality in which you live."
Mr Gutwein urged Tasmanians to do the right thing and consider the impact non-compliance was having on others.
He said he'd had some of the most difficult conversations he has ever had over the past few weeks.
"We have knocked back numerous request from families for people to attend funerals if it's more than 10 people," Mr Gutwein said.
"Yet we still have Tasmanians flaunting the rules.
"In the main, Tasmanians are doing the right thing, and I thank them for that, but there are a percentage of them that aren't."
Mr Gutwein asked Tasmanians if they knew of someone breaking the rules to report it to the police information hotline on 131 444.
There are 107 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Tasmania, nine of which were diagnosed on Wednesday.
23 of these cases are related to the North West Regional Hospital outbreak.
