Tasmanian public health authorities have decided to keep Victoria classed as a high-risk area for coronavirus, meaning travellers from the state would not be permitted to enter unless they were approved as an essential traveller.
Public Health director Mark Veitch said it was the intention to designate Victoria a low-risk area should there not be any new coronavirus cases identified in the next 48 hours.
The Victoria Government on Wednesday made a decision to lift stage-four lockdown restrictions on Victorian residents, reasoning it was now safe to do so.
The five-day lockdown ended at midnight.
