"The evidence overwhelmingly shows that while the Omicron strain is highly transmissible, we're seeing much milder and less severe effects," he said.
"This means that the majority of people with COVID-19 are not symptomatic, in good health, and capable of caring for themselves in their suitable premises without the need to utilise our COVID@home program or enter one of our Community Case Management Facilities."
