Winter Strategy and Plan 2023
The 2023 Plan supports Tasmania’s health system during winter to manage acute respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19 and influenza (flu), to provide high quality health care to our community.
It focuses on planning, prevention, detection, and early treatment of acute respiratory illnesses, to minimise health harms and health system strain. It is informed by consultation with public and private representatives across the health sector.
The key elements of the plan are:
- Maximising vaccination
- Health system preparedness
- Testing and treatment
- Winter Wellness campaign
