COVID lockdown to lift

Dear Members,
 
The current lockdown in Southern Tasmania will ease from 6PM today, Monday 18 October 2021, with some restrictions still in place, including the need to wear face masks.
 
For information on current restrictions, please visit the Keeping Yourself Safe page, noting you are to ensure the 2sqm rule applies at all time and you are required to wear face masks as per Government directions.
 
This lockdown came as a blow to our businesses and whilst only short this time, we understand Government’s need to restrict movement quickly to reduce the spread and further extend lockdowns resulting in more significant blows to the sector. CCF congratulates Government on acting quickly to protect us all.
 
We today welcome the fact that the Government is now working on a business support package, with further details to made publicly available shortly.
 
CCF further encourages our Members across the State to Get Vaccinated.  Getting vaccinated is a permissible reason to leave your home today.  The higher the vaccination rate is, the less likely we will continue to be placed in lockdowns!  
 
If you have any questions regarding Business Support, Members are encouraged to contact Business Tasmania on 1800 440 026 or email ask@business.tas.gov.au.
 
Thank you
Rachael Matheson, CEO
