Mr Rockliff will act as premier in Mr Gutwein's absence, while he recovers.

Appropriate arrangements are being made to cover absences from parliament this week.

Further updates on the premier's health will be released later in the week.

Mr Gutwein has served as the 46th premier of Tasmania since January 2020.
