Victoria’s new roadmap out of lockdown:

This news comes as Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, announced on Sunday that Melbourne will officially leave lockdown at 11.59pm on Thursday as the state hits its 70 per cent vaccine milestone.

Under the new road map, there will be no travel limit across metropolitan Melbourne and 10 visitors, including dependants, will be allowed to visit a home per day.

In Melbourne, the curfew will go and the 15-kilometre travel radius will be lifted, but travel restrictions between Melbourne and regional Victoria will remain in place.
