Victoria's hard lockdown is set to end at midnight tonight, with all new cases isolating throughout their infectious period for the third day running.
Ten new locally-acquired coronavirus cases were recorded on the back of 24,340 test results. All of the cases are linked to the current outbreak.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said it was a positive day for the state.
"Today is a good day, a good, positive day, but there's a lot of work that still has to be done," he said.
"This is with us still and we have to be vigilant against it but it's a very important day and a positive day to end this lockdown at 11:59pm tonight as we forecast and thanks to everyone who has played their part, every single Victorian and the public health team."
From Wednesday, Victorians will be allowed to travel more than five kilometres from their home for any reason but masks will remain mandatory indoors and outdoors.
Schools will reopen for all year levels. Pubs, restaurants, cafes and bars will open with a density limit of 100 inside and 300 outside.
Public gatherings will be limited to 10 people and funerals and weddings will be capped at 50 people.
No visitors will be allowed into homes for the next two weeks.
From 11:59pm tonight, the Wagga Wagga, Hay, Lockhart and Murrumbidgee local government areas will also no longer be allowed entry into Victoria.
There will be a 25 per cent return to the office but those who can work from home should continue to do so.
The announcement comes as Victoria Police revealed they would not take any legal action against the Sydney removalists that sent the state into its fifth lockdown of the pandemic.
There are 188 active cases across the state. Seven are in hospital, two are in intensive care and one is ventilated.
