Victoria records zero cases of COVID-19 for first time since June


Victoria has recorded zero new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours and no deaths, Premier Daniel Andrews announced today.

Melbourne’s 14-day rolling average for new cases has now fallen to 3.6, and there are seven “mystery” cases. In regional Victoria the average remains at 0.2.

It’s the first day since June 9 that no new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Victoria.

To mark the momentous occasion, Melbourne’s coronavirus restrictions will start being eased from 11:59pm tomorrow.

Retail outlets, cafes, restaurants and bars will be able to reopen, subject to patron limits, and more than two households will be able to gather outdoors.

Among other changes from Wednesday, beauty and tattooing services will be able to reopen for services if masks are worn.

And the four essential reasons to leave home will be removed, allowing Melburnians to leave their home for any reason.

Then, from 11:59pm Sunday November 8, more restrictions will be lifted.

The 25-kilometre limit on travel will be axed, and the border between Melbourne and regional Victoria will be removed, allowing intrastate travel again.

“The state will be one again,” Mr Andrews said.

Face coverings will remain mandatory and people will still be encouraged to work from home if possible.
