Woman fined for entering Tasmania from NSW hotspot

A Northern Tasmanian woman has been fined $1,557 after travelling to Tasmania from NSW – a Level 1 High Risk COVID-19 Area – without an approved G2G PASS.

Tasmania Police say the woman, aged in her 60s, arrived into Launceston on Monday and will spend the next 14 days in a government-designated quarantine hotel.

“The message is clear: If you’re travelling from a high-risk area you need an approved G2G PASS,” Police said in a statement online.
