22 October: Update for Tasmania

The Tasmanian Government has today announced that visitor restrictions at aged care facilities in Southern Tasmania will end at 6pm today, Friday 22 October 2021.

Restrictions remain in place for anyone who has visited a declared high risk area.

Anyone who has spent time in a high-risk area or premises in the last 14 days must not enter a residential aged care facility in Tasmania, unless exemption is granted by the Director of Public Health.

The list of high risk areas and premises is updated several times each day at www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au/travelalert.

The wearing of face masks by staff and visitors is no longer mandatory, although there may still be some instances where masks will be required. The daily visitor limit has also been removed.

Uniting AgeWell’s visitor access guidelines enable visits to take place on weekdays and weekends.

All visits will be conducted within safe visiting guidelines and ongoing screening requirements to ensure everyone’s safety.

Residents are able to leave the facility for the day to visit with family and friends.
