It's a very simple message - Stay Home, Save Lives. And it's the message that people on Tasmanians are being implored to take on board this Easter.
A few seem like they are yet to get it.
There are concerning reports circulating that many shack owners and boat owners are already starting to head to their coastal getaways ready for a traditional Easter long weekend fishing and relaxing with family and friends.

And it is simply not acceptable. Premier Peter Gutwein says we are at a critical point in the management of the deadly coronavirus where we can still contain it.
The best that most of us can do is to heed the message and just stay home.Going out in public and interacting with others is the biggest risk to most of us.

Several high profile Tasmanians have now joined the chorus, and The Examiner will be sharing their please for people to stay at home on our Facebook page to implore people to listen, take responsibility and limit their movements.
The message is clear, while we'd all like to be out there seeing family and friends, it's potentially deadly to do so.
It's the best way to help those who have to go out, our vital medical workers, cleaners and other support staff who are doing everything they can to contain the virus.
Too many of these essential workers know they can't relax at home this Easter, they are literally on the front line doing their best to save lives. We are all in this together.
And some of us may feel a little useless.
But there's no point anyone who doesn't need to leave home ignoring this and going out there, and either spreading the virus further, or seeing it passed on to one of our front line health workers - and taking them out of action.
Many are working daily under the pressure of trying to avoid infection, and also thinking of their loved ones at home who are also at risk.
Don't make it any worse and hopefully we can make the most of Tasmania's natural geographical barriers and stop the spread.
