Tasmania has tweaked its border reopening rules for residents going to and from high-risk zones on the mainland.
The island state will from Wednesday allow all fully vaccinated travellers entry, provided they return a negative test within 72 hours of arrival.
Under the original plan, Tasmanian residents travelling to high-risk locations were exempt from needing a test if they spent less than a week there.
But Premier Peter Gutwein on Friday announced all Tasmanians will need to be tested if they visit high-risk zones.
"All Tasmanians who travel to high-risk areas will be required to have a COVID-19 test, regardless of how little time they have spent there," he told reporters.
"If you want to go and shop in Melbourne for a day and it's into one of the high-risk areas, then you'll need to have a test on your return and isolate until you get the result."
Mr Gutwein said 90 per cent of Tasmanians aged 16 or over will be fully vaccinated by the end of the weekend.
The island state is currently closed to NSW and Victoria, its two biggest tourism markets, as well as the ACT and hotspots in other jurisdictions.
Tasmania has been essentially free of community COVID-19 transmission since a deadly outbreak in the northwest in April last year.
