Whether it contains a requirement to wear masks, concessions for double-dosed Tasmanians or stronger social distancing enforcement, state-specific modelling of how COVID will impact Tasmania is on the horizon.
Regardless of what it might say, the state government remained confident Tasmania will be wholly prepared for an influx of COVID cases when a 90 per cent vaccination target it hit.
The confidence came as the Tasmanian population anticipated the state-specific modelling about what the impact of positive cases and hospitalisations could be.
Cabinet Minister Michael Ferguson ahead of the release of Kirby and Garvan Institute modelling that would dictate the state's roadmap out of COVID said double-vaccination freedoms had not yet been decided upon for Tasmania.
"We're working with the Kirby and the Garvan Institutes right now for modelling specifically for Tasmania that will support our roadmap out of this, particularly as we want to relax our border restrictions," he said.
"We want to be able to enjoy Tasmania in a more conventional, more normal way, so we look forward to providing that further advice."
Premier Peter Gutwein announced a diversion from the COVID National Plan in late September when he revealed state-specific modelling applied to the federal government's Doherty Institute could result in grave consequences.
He said the same approach would see 14,900 COVID cases in the state in the first six months along with 590 hospital admissions, 97 intensive care admissions, and almost 100 deaths.
Health bodies feared the impact that would have on the health system, with 41 ICU beds readily available for COVID positive patients and a surge capacity of 114. They also queried the impact it would have on the workforce, with suspicions there were insufficient staff trained to operate the state's 367 ventilator capacity.
State Health Minister Jeremy Rockliff was co-signatory on a letter to federal Health Minister Greg Hunt calling for more Commonwealth funding for hospitals to help them get through COVID challenges.
But Mr Ferguson remained confident the state's hospital system was "well prepared for the positive cases that will come".
"That is part of the management of COVID going forward. We're well prepared, we've got significant redundancy in out health system that we've actually held onto since the initial outbreak that occurred in Tasmania [and] we've got significant resources on standby if required," he said.

While Mr Ferguson was steely in his resolve, the opposition called on the government to be "upfront and honest" about the health system and "the dire need for more federal funding".
"The facts remain that even without the burden of COVID Tasmania's health system is at breaking point," Labor Health spokeswoman Anita Dow said.
"Our health system is in crisis ... As we look to reopen out borders, we know that will have a significant impact on our health system's ability to stand up.
"We're already exceeding our demand right across the state when it comes to providing health services to our communities."
