COVID-19 Update

Here at Woolmers Estate, our visitors, our team and our communities’ health and safety are our top priority.

As Tasmania’s borders reopen, we also have to be very clear on our policies and procedures.

Our COVID-Safe Visitor Policy

  • Everyone is required to check in via the Check-In Tas app upon arrival.
  • Please use the provided hand sanitiser upon entering the site. We also have hand washing facilities located in the toilets on site. Hand washing is the most effective way to minimise spreading any viral infection. We will also have hand sanitisers available in various other key areas for your use.
  • You must STAY AT HOME if you are unwell or have been identified as a close contact with a COVID positive or potential COVID positive person. Please contact us immediately on 03 6391 2230 to discuss or reschedule your visit.

COVID-Safe Team Policy

  • If you cannot check in via the app, our receptionists can help you with this.
  • Our staff may ask you to confirm the following:
  • that you have not returned to Australia from overseas in the last 14 days.
  • that you have not had a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or other cold/flu-like symptoms in the last 72 hours.
  • That you have not been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  • That you have not recently been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Our team has collectively decided to only wear masks if our government instructs to do so however due to the smaller indoor spaces that the guided house tour enter, our house guides will be masked during their tours and we request that participants also wear a mask for the duration of the tour.
  • At present only hospitals are mandated to wear masks in Tasmania. The following information is available via the Tasmanian government website:
  • Our team members are required to stay at home if they are unwell and must return a negative covid test prior to returning to work.
  • Cleaning schedules have been implemented with increased sanitising of common areas, thorough cleaning of amenities and accommodation, gift shop and reception area with approved COVID-19 disinfectants and cleaning products.
  • Our house tour guides will wear a mask for the duration of the tour.
  • In the event of a COVID positive visitor attending the site, we may have to temporarily close for deep cleaning and we therefore may have to reschedule your visit. If this needs to happen, our team will provide you with the most notice possible and reschedule as soon as possible.
  • We will be guided by the Government as the precautions and will review as the situation evolves after the 15th of December.

Thank you for your patience and assistance to protect our community, team and visitors.
