The trio belong to a family of four who came on a return flight from Delhi to Hobart over the weekend.
He said the woman developed symptoms by the age of 30, but the children, both under 10, were asymptomatic.
« Due to the age of the children and the health of the mother, the family is being taken to the Royal Hobart Hospital by ambulance, » Gutwein said.
Tony Lawler, Tasmania’s chief medical officer, said the family will be kept in a separate ward at the hospital.
« Our processes are safe, our processes are robust and we contain the risks in the quarantine hotels and in our health system, » said Professor Lawler.
Mr. Gutwein said that no personnel involved in the arrival, transportation or quarantine had been isolated as all interactions were in accordance with infection control protocols.
« We fully expected that there would be cases of COVID-19 in quarantine due to the high risk of international travelers, » he said.
Mark Veitch, director of public health, said health and quarantine personnel are following strict protocols and Qantas has been notified.
Dr. Veitch said of more than 150. 000 international arrivals to Australia, there were only minimal positive cases in the processing of employees.
All 118 people in quarantine have passed their first coronavirus test, and 91 results have been returned so far.
You will be tested again in the coming days, but anyone with symptoms will be tested immediately.
The new coronavirus cases have brought Tasmania to 231 since the pandemic began, with 13 deaths.
An outbreak in the northwest of the state caused 127 cases and 11 deaths.
The state government will publish the results of an independent review of the outbreak today.
