Premier Peter Gutwein has no intention of calling an early election.
Asked at the weekend if he would consider an early poll he answered emphatically "no".
"This is not a popularity contest," Mr Gutwein said.
"I've had to make some of the most difficult decisions and deliver some of the most difficult outcomes to Tasmanians that any Premier has ever had to.
"This is about keeping people safe, and ensuring that we can return to as normal a life as quickly as possible."

A recent EMRS poll showed support for Labor had plummeted to just 24 per cent with the Liberals on 54 per cent.
Mr Gutwein's support as preferred Premier had risen to 70 per cent - the highest for a Premier since the late Jim Bacon.
Labor leader Rebecca White said Labor was ready to go to the polls if an early election was called.
"I have a strong, experienced and united team supporting me, and we are all committed to making Tasmania a better, fairer place," Ms White said.
"Our focus is on creating jobs, and supporting those who've been hardest hit by the pandemic.
"I look forward to contesting the next election because there are so many areas where I think Tasmania can do better, and that's what the Labor Party will deliver in government."
Election analyst Dr Kevin Bonham said he could see no reason for an early election.
"Voters usually punish the party who calls an early election without a good reason," Dr Bonham said.
"The Parliament seems a bit more stable and more solid for the government.
"Sue Hickey shares the balance of power and her relationship with Peter Gutwein is possibly better than it was with former Premier Will Hodgman."
Dr Bonham said the risks from calling an early election in a pandemic were high.
"If you had an outbreak in the middle of a campaign that would be stupid," he said.
Dr Bonham also played down the latest EMRS poll.
"If an election was held now Labor might be knocked down a seat in Bass but in an election we wouldn't see the numbers we're seeing now - circumstances change," he said.
"The current environment with border control might be gone by the time of the next election."
