Tasmania isn't budging on border restrictions, despite calls from Canberra that we all need to learn to live with the virus once our vaccination rates hit 70 to 80 per cent. 

Health Minister Jeremy Rockliff said they are working with the Federal Government, but will continue to rely on their own health advice.

"Very least 80 per cent of eligible Tasmanians need to be vaccinated before we look at removing restrictions"
