Victoria is less than two days away from new freedoms, which will see all non-essential retail reopen along with greater numbers being allowed inside hospitality venues.
All retail will reopen to both unvaccinated and vaccinated on Friday, Premier Daniel Andrews has confirmed.
But he warns this will change once 90 per cent of over-16s are fully vaccinated.
"We've added in non-essential retail and because we've added it in, the only fair thing to do is let people have time," he told reporters.
"It's part of the 90 per cent stage, where all the density quotas, all the caps, all the other rules go and we move to two rules; masks in sensitive settings, and the vaccinated economy and that lockout approach."
