Tasmanian ABC Television news presenter Guy Stayner says he’s been put at greater risk of contracting coronavirus since returning to the state on Wednesday.

Mr Stayner and others have found the state’s Good to Go app confusing, saying the exemption category made it look as though he had been granted approval to isolate at home.
