Vic records ninth straight virus-free day
2 min read
Victoria has recorded its ninth straight day of zero new coronavirus cases on Sunday as Premier Daniel Andrews prepares to announce further easing of restrictions across the state.
Melbourne's 14-day rolling virus average fell from 0.9 to 0.4, while regional Victoria's average is at zero.

There are two cases in metropolitan Melbourne with an unknown source.

It comes as the state prepares to move ahead to the next step on the COVID-19 recovery road map on Sunday.

From 11.59pm Sunday, Melbourne's "ring of steel" – which has been up since July 9 and separates the city from regional Victoria – is expected to be scrapped.

People will be free to come and go from their homes as often as they please and indoor gyms will reopen for the first time since July.

But there will be a cap on the number of people allowed in, with 10 per class or space and up to 20 for each venue.
