Coronavirus mobile testing

Tasmania's mobile coronavirus testing heads to more regional areas this weekend as the government aims to boost testing numbers.

For the West Coast, testing is available at Rosebery today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday), then Queenstown on Sunday and Monday.

In Dunalley, Triabunna, and Deloraine, the clinics are held tomorrow and Sunday.

Health Minister Sarah Courtney is encouraging appointments be made.

"We would prefer that you try and book, but if you can't book we won't turn you away."

Next week, drive up clinics running Tuesday to Thursday will be held at Launceston's Prospect Vale at the Laboratory Government Offices and in the state's south east at the Sorell Market area in front of the Council Chambers.

The footprint of coronavirus has stretched to some of Tasmania's more remote and sparsely populated locations including the West Coast.

Of the state's 226 cases, two of them are attributed to the region of approximately 4000 people.

Mayor Phil Vickers told Tasmania Talks, locals have been playing their part in tackling the disease.

"90 plus% are all doing the right thing, it didn't affect our mining industry, thank God, the mines have been doing temperature testing for everyone on every shift, it has been a good all round effort."
