Victoria has recorded 779 new locally acquired cases and two deaths.

Premier Daniel Andrews said some restrictions will ease in regional Victoria and Metropolitan Melbourne once the state reaches 80 per cent single-dose vaccination target, which is expected to happen on Tuesday, 28 September.

The distance to travel from home will be increased to 15 km and outdoor recreation, including golf, tennis and basketball, will be allowed, subject to caps. Restrictions will also ease for personal training for fully vaccinated residents.
