Tasmania is synonymous with unique and vibrant events and it is important that as we respond to changing COVID-19 circumstances, that we can continue to enjoy events in a COVID safe way.
We are all learning how to live with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future. This means that while we have been able to return to doing some things as normal there are behaviours and some restrictions that we will need to maintain over the medium to long term.
As public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Tasmania continue to change, the Events Framework has been reviewed and updated and will come into effect from 1 November 2021.
It is important to remember that public gatherings and events are a high-risk activity and therefore need to be carefully planned.
The revised Events Framework will continue to require you to submit an application to hold an event. Events will continue to be assessed according to their size, type, complexity and associated risk factors. Events may have additional conditions imposed depending on the risk factors of the event, to manage the public health risk.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an evolving situation, which means there may still be changes to how events are delivered in the future – including modifications/restrictions, postponement or cancellation.
