She will be subject to COVID testing and more frequent screening of symptoms as a result "to ensure the earliest possible identification of any disease".
Hotel quarantine is provided by private security firms in Tasmania, which police say is a "high standard of security".
"Tasmania Police continues to provide support to private security, including call-when-needed and regular checks at hotels," the Tasmania Police statement reads.
"Tasmania Police was called as soon as the incident occurred last night and it was resolved quickly.
"The model for domestic security has served us well in keeping the community safe - we have had very few issues with non-compliance."
