Crowds can increase at public events as Victoria recorded the ninth day with no local transmission.

Victoria has gone a ninth consecutive day without recording a locally acquired case of coronavirus, as restrictions ease for Melbourne. 

The health department on Friday also confirmed there was one COVID-19 case in hotel quarantine, with the total number of active infections in the state remaining at 21. 

Some 25,590 tests were processed in the 24 hours to Friday morning, while15,665 Victorians received a vaccine dose at one of the state-run hubs.

It comes as Melbourne moved to the same restrictions currently in place in regional Victoria overnight. 

Masks will no longer be required at schools and in workplaces where staff are not interacting with the public while retail, hospitality, stadiums, and other venues will be able to increase their capacity and dancefloors can reopen.
