Victoria has recorded 24 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases, 18 of whom were in quarantine while infectious.

Melbourne’s lockdown, which will run until September 2, has been tightened further with the cancellation of late-night weekend public transport.

No trains, trams or buses will run between 1:00am and 5:00am on Saturdays and 1:00am and 6:00am on Sundays for the next two weeks.

The announcement of the cancellation, which the government said was the same setting in place during last year’s second wave, comes a day after playgrounds were closed and a curfew was put in place.
