At least 10 Spirit of Tasmania crew members remain in quarantine after being identified as a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case.
The case was a TT-Line contractor and was detected in Melbourne, leading to the crew members being removed from the ship yesterday and placed into hotel quarantine where they will be tested.
As of Friday evening, there were no positive cases in Tasmania.
With the crew members in isolation, Friday night sailings from Devonport had to be postponed, and those onboard the ship were given the option of remaining in their rooms, or disembarking.
Friday night's Melbourne to Devonport sailing was also postponed.
The rest of the crew remained onboard, and while considered to be "very low-risk", would also be tested on Saturday morning.
Tasmania's Deputy Director of Public Health Dr Julie Graham said it was believed there was no risk to the other 60 passengers booked on that sailing.
She said public health would provide an update on Saturday, once test results returned.
