While the Tasmanian Government has deemed forestry an industry permitted to operate throughout any lockdown, the Network reiterates the importance of carefully following and applying all endorsed guidelines and COVID-safe measures in forestry operations. Given this afternoon’s announcement, this is particularly pertinent to those in southern Tasmania.

We encourage all industry operators and workers to familiarise themselves with the relevant guidelines below.
