Victoria has now recorded more than two weeks with no community transmission, as the state spends its first weekend without a ‘ring of steel’ around Melbourne.

Saturday was the 15th day in a row with no new cases of coronavirus in the state.

There were also no new deaths from COVID-19 on Saturday, making it the 15th “double donut day” for the state.

In the 24 hours to Saturday morning, 14,614 Victorians were tested for the coronavirus.

There are now only three active coronavirus cases in Victoria.

That’s compared to 23 active cases in NSW, eight active cases in Queensland, and 53 in New Zealand.

Melbourne residents flocked out of the city on Friday evening, as the city celebrated its first opportunity to have a weekend getaway in months.

The ‘ring of steel’ banning travel of more than 25 kilometres from the home, and Melbourne residents going to regional Victoria, was lifted from Monday.

The next step on the ‘Roadmap to Recovery’ for Victoria is scheduled for next Sunday, November 22.

Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Monday the following changes to restrictions would come into effect from 11.59pm on that Sunday:

  • Up to 10 people will be allowed inside a home at one time
  • Up to 50 people can gather outdoors
  • Indoor physical recreation — including gyms — can have up to 100 people with classes of up to 20
  • Indoor community sport can go ahead with up to 100 people and outdoor with up to 500 people
  • Weddings and funerals allowed with up to 100 people unless at private residence
  • Hospitality venues can have 100 people indoors and 200 outdoors

For the full list see the ‘Third Steps’ guide at the bottom of this statement from Daniel Andrews.
