Hobart and southern Tasmania are exiting a snap lockdown as scheduled, but some extra Covid-19 restrictions will remain.

Premier Peter Gutwein confirmed the three-day lockdown would end at 6pm on Monday after the state reported no new cases from more than 1463 tests.

But masks will remain mandatory until at least 6pm on Friday, along with restrictions for aged care facilities and hospitals.

‘We are snapping back to where we were apart from those restrictions,’ Mr Gutwein told reporters on Monday.

The island state’s south region was plunged into a 72-hour stint of stay-at-home restrictions on Friday evening after an infected NSW man absconded from the Hobart Travelodge and spent about 18 hours at large.
