A Youngtown woman, 25, has been fined $774 after allegedly being detected breaching COVID-19 home quarantine requirements.
Tasmania Police said the woman arrived in the state on October 25 from NSW, which is considered a medium risk region any traveller is subject to 14 days' home quarantine.

During the random check on Wednesday, she was not at home. Police investigated the breach and established that she had travelled to a local shopping centre at Youngtown to collect groceries ordered online.
"Police are satisfied that the woman did not enter the store and there was no close contact with any members of the public and therefore the risk was minimal," Inspector Darren Hopkins said.
"While on this occasion no other people were placed at risk, the risk of COVID-19 still exists in this state. Now that the borders are opening, Tasmanians need to stay vigilant."
