Premier Daniel Andrews said the state needs to take a "small first step" as he announced what the first stage of relaxed restrictions would look like and when it would come into effect.

Victorians will now have another reason to leave their house besides shopping for essential supplies, medical care, work and educational and exercise. 

They will now be allowed to have five guests at their home effective from 11.59 pm on Tuesday.


Highlights:

  • Victorians can now have five guests at their home
  • Weddings will now be able to have ten guests
  • Up to 10 people will be allowed to join religious gatherings

In addition, restrictions on groups will also be lifted allowing 10 people to participate together in outdoor activities.

“Whether it be hiking, fishing, playing golf, going for a walk, kicking a footy - no more than 10, and there will be physical distancing and hygiene arrangements, commonsense basically,” said Mr Andrews.
