Premier Jeremy Rockliff is reminding Tasmanians of the importance of reporting positive test results.

Locals who test positive for Coronavirus can register your test here, or by calling the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 to ensure you have access to COVID@homeplus if you require it, as well as access to anti-viral medications if you are eligible.

Masks must still be worn in all our public hospitals.
