Tasmania records three new COVID-19 cases, bringing total to 10

Tasmania has recorded three new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number since borders reopened to interstate hotspots to 10.

All cases are either being managed at home or in a community case management facility, with no hospital admissions.

Several new exposure sites have been listed in southern Tasmania.

People who visited Bellerive’s Groundsman Espresso between 8:09am and 8:19am on Friday are deemed casual contacts and should get a test.

Five business premises in Sorell have also been listed as low risk on Friday and Saturday, with Public Health authorities urging those people to monitor for symptoms.

An indoor mask mandate comes into effect in Tasmania from midnight tonight but the government recommends they be worn from now.

The mandate applies to all indoor settings except for homes.

Genomic sequencing has so far confirmed that at least three of the active cases are the Omicron variant.

More to come.
