Only those entering Tasmania from Victoria and other COVID hot spots are required to be tested, while those with quarantine exemption can enter workplaces before getting their test result.

Labor has called for mandatory immediate coronavirus testing of all arrivals in Tasmania, for them to be quarantined until the test outcome is confirmed, then retested at 12 days.
