Two Tasmanians fined for failing to comply with Stay-at-Home Order

Wednesday, 4 August 2021 – 1:46 pm.

Tasmania Police continues to monitor compliance with the Stay-at-Home Order issued by the Director of Public Health.
On Tuesday, two people received infringement notices for not staying ‘at home’ as directed. The penalty for failing to comply with the stay-at-home order is $778.50.
A 39-year-old woman from Northern Tasmania who recently returned from Queensland breached the order by attending a family gathering on Saturday. Information was reported to police who investigated and later spoke to the woman and issued the fine.
In a separate matter, a 52-year-old Launceston woman who had also recently returned from Queensland was fined after police received information that she had attended a shopping complex without wearing a mask. 
Neither woman had been in a high-risk premises while in Queensland, and as such the risk to others in the wider Tasmanian community is low.
Inspector John Toohey from the State Police Operations Centre said Tasmania Police will continue to conduct both targeted and random checks of those subject to the order.
“The changing COVID environment with the Delta strain has presented significant challenges in mainland states and we need to ensure the community complies with directions,” he said. 
“To date we have taken an educative approach which is still very important to continue to influence behaviours, but where a blatant act is identified in breach of a Public Health Direction, those disobeying the order should expect to be issued with a $778.50 fine.”
The stay-at-home order will remain in place until 4pm on Sunday 8 August 2021.
Any person who has arrived from one of the 11 specified Local Government Areas in Queensland on or after 17 July (but prior to 4pm on 31 July) is required to ‘stay-at-home’ except for limited reasons. If away from their home, they must wear a mask. 
For the most up to date information and exceptions please refer to the Tasmanian Coronavirus website at https://coronavirus.tas.gov.au/.
