From 1 May 2021 Tasmanians and visitors will be required to use the Check In TAS app when they visit a range of businesses, organisations and events . This will help to keep ourselves, our loved ones and our community safe.

The free Check In TAS app is available for download from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

If you do not have a smartphone or are unable to use one, others in your group can check in for you or staff at the premises will be able to check you in manually.

Each time you sign into these locations  with Check in TAS, your details will be stored securely with the Tasmanian Department of Health for 28 days before being deleted.

Your details will only be accessed by Public Health if contact tracing is needed due to a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the community.

Having a strong Public Health contact tracing app like Check in TAS means when someone is confirmed as having COVID-19, we can rapidly access high-quality data about places that a person attended while they were infectious.

When contact tracing is underway in response to a COVID-19 case, there is not a moment to lose. Every minute counts. Public Health needs reliable information fast and in a consistent format that’s easy to use, so they can identify close contacts to help contain spread of the disease.

Further information, including the types of premises, is available online at
