Mr Gutwein said his border closure forecast is to allow outbreaks in other states, including Victoria and NSW, to be brought under control.

The Premier said that in a bid to encourage intrastate holidays, Tasmanians will be provided with a $100 travel incentive as part of a new $7.5 million voucher system.

“In regards to extending our border restrictions for a longer period, we also recognise there is a need to do more to help our hospitality and tourism industry,” Mr Gutwein said in an address to state parliament on Tuesday.
