Victoria has recorded its first day with no new COVID-19 cases since early June, and Premier Dan Andrews has announced restrictions will ease this week.
“I could not be prouder than I am today,” said Premier Dan Andrews.
As of midnight tomorrow night, Tuesday October 27, Victoria’s restrictions will ease, with retail and hospitality businesses able to reopen.
Hospitality venues will be permitted to seat up to 20 people indoors, and 50 outdoors, provided density and social distancing requirements are met.
Beauty salons, personal services, and tattoo parlours will also be allowed to reopen, and outdoor community sport for under 18, and outdoor non-contact sport for over 18 can recommence.
Outdoor gatherings will remain at a maximum of ten people, but more than two households will now be able to attend.
Premier Dan Andrews also revealed as of 11:59 on Sunday November 8, the 25km travel limit will go, and the state will become one again.
Capacity for restaurants, hotels, cafes, bars, and the number of people permitted at weddings and funerals will also increase on November 8.
More to come.
