Mandatory contact tracing requirements

Recording patron details to support contract tracing is now mandatory for a wide range of Tasmanian venues and events.

If you run an event or business where people are spending more than 15 minutes in close proximity to each other, you are likely to be legally obliged to collect patron details.

The name, phone number and date and time of entry must be recorded for individuals or a representative of a group.

These contact details will help Public Health rapidly identify possible contacts if a person at the venue later tests positive to COVID-19. The details may also help identify the source of a person’s infection.
