Victoria set to establish ‘COVID normal’ during announcement on Sunday

A change to mask rules and increased social gathering caps are expected to be announced for Victoria on Sunday.

Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton has indicated it will be safe for the state to move to a “COVID normal” level of restrictions.

Victoria has been free of locally transmitted coronavirus cases for more than a month and with no active cases, has effectively eradicated the virus.

Under the government’s original roadmap out of lockdown, “COVID normal” signifies a final easing of attendance restrictions on community sport, hospitality venues, gatherings and visitors to the home.

Professor Sutton said authorities were still working through details ahead of Premier Daniel Andrew’s Sunday press conference but confirmed advice around masks, which currently must be worn in indoor settings, will change.
