Tas Check in App

The Check in Tas App has been developed by the Tasmanian State Government to ensure that we are able to manage any COVID cases as fast and effectively as possible.

The best way of doing this is through contact tracing where anyone who has been in contact with someone who tests positive to COVID can be identified, contacted, isolated and tested as fast as possible to limit the spread.

From 1 May 2021, all Tasmanian venues are using the Check in Tas App to manage people’s contact tracing information. If you have a smartphone like an Android/Google phone or an iPhone, you can download the Check in Tas App and be ready to play your part in keeping Tasmanian’s safe and our venues open.

Downloading and using the App is easy! Click 'read more' below to watch some explainer videos or download this helpful booklet - let’s get started.
