Tasmanians must stay vigilant

Tasmanian Labor

The detection of a COVID case today is a critical reminder to all Tasmanians to remain vigilant and follow public health advice.

“This is a timely reminder that it’s critical to follow public health advice to keep our community safe,” Acting Labor Leader Anita Dow said.

“That includes continuing to use the Check-In Tas app, practicing social distancing, getting tested if you have any symptoms and scheduling a vaccine appointment.”

Ms Dow thanked Tasmania’s frontline workers for their hard work protecting the state.

“Labor would like to put on the record once again its thanks to Tasmania’s frontline workers and health workforce for their continued hard work and commitment to keeping Tasmanians safe.

“Labor welcomes the re-establishment of briefings from health officials and the premier’s office following our recent request and the very serious outbreaks in other states.

“These briefings provide the opportunity for important information to be shared and most importantly the opportunity for Labor to ask critical questions about the processes and public health orders that are in place to protect Tasmanians.”
