Tasmania 'Roadmap to Recovery' Update
On Friday 5 June at 3pm, Tasmania is set to ease COVID-19 restrictions back to Stage Two. As part of Stage Two, the following is stated: 'Gatherings at businesses increase to 20, with the following reopening or subject to changed restrictions: ... massage'.
The Association interprets this as confirming that all massage services will be able to resume in Tasmania from 5 June at 3pm so long as proper hygiene and infection control is being maintained and relevant physical distancing requirements are adhered to. This includes previously restricted services such as Certificate IV qualified therapeutic massage.
This information can be found on the Roadmap to Recovery page on the Tasmanian Government website.
The Association also reminds members who continue to treat to always maintain vigilant hygiene and infection control. For more information, see our video with Dr Norman Swan.
If you have not already completed it, the Association also recommends the COVID-19 Infection Control Training module provided by the Department of Health. Members who complete this course can claim 5 CPE points.
