Victoria has recorded its tenth straight day of zero new coronavirus cases on Monday as Victorians wake to a range of scrapped restrictions and new-found freedoms.

There are two cases with an unknown source and four active cases across the state.

It comes as Premier Daniel Andrews announced an easing of restrictions across the state on Sunday.

From Monday morning Melbourne’s 25km radius rule was removed, while the “ring of steel” separating the city from regional Victoria was also scrapped.

Gyms and fitness studios in Melbourne can reopen with a maximum of 20 people per venue, ten people per space.
