In this bulletin.....

  • South Australia to lift its lockdown restrictions sooner than planned
  • An extremist convicted of plotting terror attacks in Melbourne is jailed
  • Victoria to resume its hotel quarantine program in just over a fortnight

Victoria will begin receiving international arrivals from December 7, with an initial cap of 160 travelers per day.

The state's hotel quarantine program was suspended in June and an inquiry was called after multiple coronavirus outbreaks were linked to workers at the Rydges and Stamford Plaza hotels.

The outbreaks sparked Victoria's second wave.

A Victorian government spokeswoman says it will release further details about its reset quarantine program soon.

The state has recorded no new cases of coronavirus for 21 days.
