Victoria shakes off more restrictions as Sydney keeps watch

Victorians will see a further easing of COVID restrictions from tomorrow as the state takes another step out of its 4th lockdown. Melbourne and regional Victoria will be reunited as travel limits are dropped. Masks will no longer be mandatory outdoors, and gyms and indoor entertainment venues will reopen. And there’s something for footy fans (but disappointment it’s not more…): 7,000 spectators can attend the Geelong v Western Bulldogs AFL game in Geelong tomorrow night. It comes as Victoria recorded 3 new local COVID cases yesterday, which are all linked to known outbreaks. Meanwhile, NSW recorded 2 new locally acquired cases after a Bondi man came into contact with international flight crew through his work as a driver. The source of his infection is currently being investigated, and a list of exposure sites in Sydney’s east was distributed.
