Tasmania will move early to stage three coronavirus restrictions, allowing outdoor gatherings of up to 500 people from Friday.

At a briefing, Premier Peter Gutwein said that from midday Friday, Tasmania's physical distancing restrictions would also be eased to allow for one person per 2 square metres.

Up to 250 people will be allowed to gather indoors, but the number of people allowed to gather in a household will remain capped at 20.

He said while Tasmania was in "a good position", Victoria had found adhering to the household rules challenging.

Casinos and gaming venues will also be able to open from Friday, as will markets but with adequate physical distancing.

The Premier said while Tasmania was able to allow greater density in gatherings, he also sounded a warning.

"Do not think this is over — you just have to look at what has occurred in Victoria," he said.

"The [global] body count continues to rise."

The Government will announce its plans for borders on Friday and will continue to review physical distancing requirements over the next month.
