Dear Mr Vaux

Thank you for your correspondence dated 22 April 2020 relating to boating during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As previously advised, boating and fishing for recreation/exercise is currently permitted in Tasmania supporting both physical and mental wellbeing. However; certain restrictions apply including launching within the municipality within which your primary residential address is listed for the purpose of stay at home restrictions. These restrictions are in place until 15 May 2020 at which time they will be reviewed.

I note the Tasmanian Government’s current restrictions are aligned with BIA’s Phase 2 recommendations.

Yours sincerely

Michael Ferguson MP
Minister for Infrastructure and Transport
