An 18-month-old Victorian baby who's caught covid is doing well.

Last Thursday the little boy was brought to Tasmania on by his mother, who didn't have a valid G2G pass, and authorities placed them in hotel quarantine.

They were moved to the Fountainside medi hotel on Sunday night after the baby's positive result.

Anyone who was at Hobart Airport on Thursday night between 8.25 and 9.50 pm should monitor for symptoms and isolate if they develop.

Deputy Director of Public Health Dr Julie Graham says the risk to the community is low.
