Queensland lifts hotspot status for Tasmania

Queensland has lifted its hotspot declaration for Tasmania, meaning domestic travel can resume.

That’s after a snap three-day lockdown was declared for the southern part of the state last week when a COVID positive person breached hotel quarantine.

After the three days, there were no new cases of concern to Tasmanian officials, so they came out of the lockdown as planned on Monday night.


Queensland has now confirmed that there’s no threat as well, and have lifted their hotspot declaration and border ban.

Travel was allowed to resume from 1.00 am this morning.

Anyone currently in quarantine after arriving from Tasmania will be able to leave.
