Coronavirus Update 30 June

Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Health

Tasmania has recorded 1,268 new cases overnight, with 1,077 people recovered and released from isolation in that time.

The total number of active cases currently stands at 7,416 and we now have more than 180,000 Tasmanians who have recovered from COVID-19.

There are currently 44 people in hospital with COVID and of these, 14 are being treated specifically for COVID. There are currently three people being cared for in the ICU.

Public Health officials have previously explained that fluctuations in daily case numbers are a part of living with COVID and it remains our collective responsibility to look out for one another by continuing to follow COVID-safe behaviours.

Sadly, I can confirm a Female in her 100s has passed away in the State’s South and a Male in his 70s has passed away in the State’s North West.

I extend my sincere condolences to their families, friends, and loved ones.

With COVID still circulating in our community it’s important to continue following the COVID-safe behaviours – practice good hand hygiene, follow social distancing and consider wearing a mask when you can’t, test when you have symptoms and stay home when you are unwell.

And the most important thing you can continue to do to protect yourself, your family and the community is to roll up your sleeves and get vaccinated when you are due.

If you haven’t already, make a booking with one of the many providers across the state and get your vaccination as soon as possible.
