As Melbourne’s 25 km travel rule is abolished from midnight tonight and the “ring of steel” comes down, Victorians will be able to travel anywhere in the state.
The sweeping reforms are coming as Premier Daniel Andrews announced a raft of coronavirus restrictions will be relaxed this morning.
The cap on meetings would also be expanded under the changes.
The cap on the number of individuals permitted to use outdoor venues will increase to 40 individuals inside and 70 outside.
It would be possible to open gyms and indoor pools, as well as cinemas, public libraries, play areas, indoor skate parks, and museums.
At these locations, the indoor limit will be 20 individuals per site.
Faith gatherings will increase to 50 people outdoors and 20 inside with the same limits to apply for funerals.
