An online initiative is calling for the community to care for the carers.
Facebook group Adopt a Healthcare Worker is connecting healthcare workers with people who are able to offer support during the coronavirus pandemic.
The group was started by Facebook user Chris Nicholas and already has over 36,000 members.
"If you know someone who works in healthcare, make a commitment now to look after them," the page says.
"At the very least, it means checking in with them regularly.
"Working on the front line is going to take its toll - be there to support them. Find out what will help them to function. Do they need you to prepare some meals they can freeze? Do they need you to pick up or look after their kids? Even if it's on the one day they get off, so they can catch up on some sleep.
"Do they need a shoulder to cry on? Someone to scrub their shower because it hasn't been done in a month? Talk to them early, because when they really need the help, they might not be in the right space to ask for help."
So far, Tasmanians have made dozens of posts like: Hi I'm [name], living in Invermay. I do not have a car but can sew, knit, iron and cook. Bonus, I am qualified as a biomedical scientist, (disclaimer, have not worked in the industry since graduating in 2005, but still know basic techniques). Will help if needed"
And, "I'm in Kingston. Have 3 young kids. Can help with meals, food shopping delivery, ear to listen. Thank you all health care workers. You are all appreciated."
