Some wedding dancing allowed

Coronavirus restrictions which prevent dancing at weddings in Tasmania have been slightly adjusted.

Parents, guardians, and the bridal party are allowed to dance at weddings under the new rules which came into effect at 12:01am today.

"We were able to provide a relaxation on the restrictions as they apply to weddings and the bridal party. A couple getting married, along with parents, guardians and members of the bridal party will be allowed to have that dance which for many people is so very important," Premier Peter Gutwein announced today.

But he says it'll only be for the first dance and venues will not be allowed to conduct dancing "all night long".

"Don't run the risk of the memory of your wedding being tarnished because people spread the virus," he said.

It's also been announced karaoke will be allowed to resume in Tasmania, alongside darts and table pool at pubs. 

Director of Public Health Dr Mark Veitch confirmed discussions with the Department of Education are underway as to possibly easing dancing restrictions at school leavers' events such as formals.

It comes as Tasmania's State of Emergency is extended until the end of October. 

All arrivals to Tasmania will have their temperature checked from next week - including essential travellers - and anyone with symptoms will be tested for coronavirus and isolated.
