Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday afternoon, Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein said restrictions would stay in place until at least December “to allow sufficient time for the COVID-19 situation in Victoria and the threat posed to other states to be clearly controlled”.

(*1*) he added.

Last week, the Northern Territory said that its borders would be closed for at least 18 months.
