The Premier has outlined a clear, staged and steady pathway to short term recovery from the coronavirus lockdown.

Now Tasmanians can see some light through the darkness.

It’s been heartbreaking for some and hard for many, but we should all be proud of how our island community is responding in this time of true crisis.

The Greens note that all the announced steps forward will be based on Public Health advice, which we hope will provide reassurance to teachers, parents, students and others returning to work.

Tasmania can eliminate this virus with a responsive staged and steady approach, and if we all follow the rules. The last thing we want is a second wave of infections and the need to step backwards to tougher restrictions.

We are thankful for Premier Gutwein’s leadership in these hard times for humanity.
