The Greens implore all Tasmanians to take the coronavirus threat very seriously, to practice physical distancing and to stay home if they can. The Premier is right, we are at war. 

The decisions we make as individual Tasmanians will make all the difference. This is a matter of life and death.

We understand no one is intentionally spreading COVID-19. Inattention and apathy, however, can put people at risk.

We are outside business as usual in every sense. This threat is real and it is up to everyone to take it seriously.

Those not taking isolation or physical distancing directions seriously are putting people’s lives in danger.

It’s that chillingly simple. We all have the capacity to make decisions that will save lives as this pandemic sweeps the globe.
