Victoria’s 12-day COVID-19 lockdown ended at 11.59pm on 27 July, although "lockdown lite" restrictions will remain in place for at least two weeks. Amongst other things, the 5km travel limit has been scrapped, schools and gyms will reopen and Victorians will be allowed to leave their home for any reason; however, households will continue to be banned from having visitors and face masks will remain compulsory in all public places. Premier Daniel Andrews has warned that some restrictions – and the potential for further lockdowns – can be expected until the majority of Victorians have been vaccinated; about 40.48 per cent of Victorians aged 16+ have received one dose, while 16.98 per cent are fully vaccinated. Victoria has recorded 10 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, but they had all been self-isolating while they were infectious.
