Free travel between Melbourne and Gippsland
The border between Melbourne and Gippsland and the regions will be gone at midnight.
That is one of a few announcements today by Premier Daniel Andrews, who also relaxed many of Melbourne's restrictions to bring them into line with the rest of the state.
A date has also been set for the next step to be taken statewide from 23 November.
Today's easing will see the removal of the 'border' between metro and regional areas, meaning travel can take pace freely across the state.
Also from tonight, indoor entertainment venues will be able to open with 20 people per space, meaning movie theatres, galleries, museums and music halls will now be able to open.
The rules around visiting aged care and hospitals will also be relaxed meaning from tomorrow, instead of a specific number of visitors, a household will be able to visit together, once per day and limited to two hours, while the time limit for partners visiting maternity wards will no longer exist.
Individual hospitals and facilities though may continue to have their own policies, reflecting the needs of their patients and whatever the virus might be doing in our community.
Melbourne has come into line with the regions on current restrictions, with more to come in two weeks for the whole state. SEE BELOW.
