Victoria To Unveil 'Modest Easing' Roadmap Based On Case Number Thresholds

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced a roadmap will be provided that will allow slow and steady easing of restrictions across Victoria.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced he & Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton will provide a roadmap that will contain markers for slow and steady easing of restrictions across Victoria.

In his daily press conference, Andrews said, "If we can't achieve zero, despite our best efforts, how many cases can we tolerate? It will need to be a low number. It cannot be in the hundreds because it won't be in the hundreds for long. It will raise and get away from us.

"Then, based on those thresholds and those low case numbers, we will make further announcements about things that can be eased. Those announcements will be made tomorrow.'

"I want to stress, for all Victorians, no decision has been made about what will be on that list and not on that list. It's not like we made a decision and I'm not sharing it, it genuinely hasn't been made.'

"We're looking at all manner of different we might be able to do, but I do want to be very clear with the people of Victoria. This will not be freedom day. It will not be an opening up tight day. It will be modest changes that hopefully can be meaningful in people's lives. As much economic activity as is possible, but they will be very modest changes because there is no middle ground here."

Victoria recorded 76 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday.
