Victoria’s strong run of low daily coronavirus cases has continued as Melburnians wake to eased restrictions on Monday.
The Department of Health and Human Services announced four new cases and follows just two cases on Sunday.
It is the sixth consecutive day cases have been in the single digits, and the fourth in a row they have been below five.
Metropolitan Melbourne’s 14-day rolling average has fallen to 7.2 while there are 15 mystery cases from October 3 to October 16.
Regional Victoria’s 14-day rolling average is 0.5 while it has zero mystery cases.
There was one more death confirmed in the previous 24 hours, with the state’s death toll now at 817.
Melbourne restrictions eased
People can now leave their homes for unlimited periods and travel up to 25km from their homes, while people can meet in groups of 10 outdoors if those present are from a maximum of two households.
However hospitality and retail will have to wait longer for their green light, with business change pencilled in for November 2.
Facilities such as skate parks, golf courses and tennis courts will reopen.
Melburnians will also be able to get a haircut, see an allied health professional, renovate their home, wash their car and bid at an auction, though a number of strict safety protocols will be in place.
