Victoria has recorded one new local case of coronavirus in the past 24 hours. It is connected to the existing outbreak and the person has been isolating during their infectious period.

The government is set to ease lockdown restrictions as planned from Friday, barring any unexpected mystery cases, though Melburnians will be restricted to travelling no more than 25 kilometres from their homes.

A source close to the state government, who spoke on the condition of anonymity as they were not authorised to speak publicly, confirmed the new bubble rule to The Age on Tuesday evening.

Visitors to the home will still not be allowed in metropolitan Melbourne.

Authorities have removed scores of locations from Victoria’s official tally of COVID-19 exposure sites overnight.
