Tasmanians urged to stay COVID safe

As Tasmania continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, Tasmanians are being thanked by the Government for their efforts in keeping everyone safe.

Border restrictions are set to be relaxed to low risk states as of Monday 26th October 2020 and Tasmanian businesses are encouraged to review their COIVD-Safety plans and communicate this clearly to all staff and customers.

Elise Archer, Minister for Building and Construction mentioned in a media release today “Tasmanian businesses are required to record in writing how they are meeting the minimum standards required by Public Health.”

“This is generally done through a COVID Safety Plan which documents the steps businesses are taking to reduce the risk of COVID-19 for their staff and customers.” She wrote.

Compliance checks are still being conducted to ensure every business is following their COIVD-19 Safety Plan and the Work Health and Safety Act 2012.

Elise Archer stated “It is pleasing to see how willing employers, workers and the community are in contributing and playing their important part in keeping Tasmanians safe and our economy open for business.”

To ensure the continued recovery of COIVD-19, people are urged to remember the importance of good hygiene practices.

Wash your hands, keep your distance, stay at home if you’re sick and if you are showing symptoms to get tested and follow all the current restrictions.
