Sports grounds, theatres, cinemas, places of worship and funerals will be able to have 100 per cent capacity from May 1, bringing Tasmania into line with other states and territories making the same move.
Venues are currently capped at 75 per cent, including the requirement for people to wear masks at funerals and cinemas when at that limit dues to the one person per two-square-metre rule.
The relaxed restrictions come after recommendations from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee.

Other COVID-safe measures, including check-in requirements using the Check in TAS app, and the need for hand sanitiser to be available, will still be required.
Director of public health Mark Veitch said indoor gatherings with 250 or more people, and outdoor events exceeding 1000, would still need to comply with the Framework for COVID-19 Safe Events and Activities.
"For those Tasmanian venues with an existing approval of up to 75 per cent seated capacity, there is no need to apply again. These venues will shortly receive an updated approval for 100 per cent seated capacity from May 1," he said.
