Victoria has recorded 35 new cases of coronavirus in the past day and another seven deaths.


It comes as playgrounds reopened across Melbourne this morning and single people are now allowed to have one visitor in their social bubble, in the first easing of Melbourne’s stage four restrictions today.

On Sunday, the Victorian government announced a $3 billion rescue package for businesses.

For the state to move to step two in the road map out of restrictions, the 14 day average needs to get below 50 by September 28.

The 14 day average was not immediately available.
