The Department of Health is preparing for further cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Tasmania, and healthcare workers are on high alert for potential cases. At the moment there are 15 people who have COVID-19 in Tasmania and one Tasmanian in isolation on the mainland.
One of the requests from the government is that “Non-essential organised indoor gatherings of greater than 100 people (including staff) are no longer permitted.” Our support meetings may not have 100 people attending but for the welfare of each member we need to protect them.
Lupus Association of Tasmania Inc. committee are adhering to the new rules set in place by the government and advise all members that there will be NO support meetings conduct throughout Tasmania until after May 31st 2020.
