Victoria recorded no new coronavirus cases on 26 October, and the number of active cases statewide has fallen to 91. It was the first day with zero new cases since 9 June, prompting Premier Daniel Andrews to announce major changes to lockdown measures from 11.59pm on 27 October. Amongst other things, Melbourne retailers and hospitality venues will be permitted to re-open, although there will be limits on the number of patrons, while Melbourne residents will be allowed to leave their home for any reason for the first time since 9 July. However, some restrictions will remain in place until at least 8 November, including the 25km travel limit.
