WATCH LIVE: Victoria’s COVID-19 update press conference today on coronavirus cases, lockdown end, next steps

Victoria’s latest COVID-19 challenge is far from over, despite the end of the Melbourne lockdown and the further easing of regional restrictions.

As the relaxed rules came into effect at midnight on Thursday, health authorities were trying to work out how four members of a Melbourne family with no known links to current outbreaks tested positive for the virus.

Victoria’s health authorities are set to provide a COVID-19 update on Friday. This article will be updated with the time as soon as it’s confirmed. You can watch the press conference LIVE in the video player above.

Victorian health officials had started interviewing a couple late on Thursday after they travelled through NSW to Queensland and tested positive, sparking health alerts in those states.

Also on Thursday, wastewater detections of the virus were reported in the suburban Pascoe Vale, Scoresby and Vermont areas.

Anyone developing symptoms in those areas is urged to get tested.
