Full capacity to return for some events
Tasmania will adopt the national recommendation and move to 100% seating capacity in theatres and sporting venues indoors and outdoors across the state by early next month.
In a statement, the Premier detailed that the advice from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee to National Cabinet, was that if community transmission remains contained and we continue to manage international arrivals, then ticketed venues will be able to move to full seating capacity.
Peter Gutwein calls it great news and a huge step forward for the local arts sector and sporting venues.
He's also advised that Public Health will work closely with venues to ensure they have COVID safe plans so that as many Tasmanians as possible can enjoy local productions and events in a COVID safe way.
