Making RATs more accessible in remote and rural areas

Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Health

The Tasmanian Government recognises that access to testing is critical in the ongoing detection of COVID, which is why today we announced our updated COVID testing strategy to improve the distribution of RATs in Tasmania, particularly for people in regional areas.
