In Victoria, 76 per cent of eligible adults over the age of 16 are fully vaccinated while around 91 per cent have received their first dose.  

Victorians continue to enjoy their new-found freedom this week as the state is set to hit the 80 per cent vaccination target ahead of schedule next weekend. 

The ban on travel between Melbourne and regional Victoria will be scrapped, reconnecting the state for the first time since the city's 77-day lockdown lifted.

Masks will no longer need to be worn outdoors, entertainment venues, gyms and retail stores can reopen indoors for fully vaccinated patrons, and capacity limits will increase for restaurants, pubs and cafes.

Students from every year level across the state also return to full-time, face-to-face learning on November 1 before Tuesday's Melbourne Cup public holiday.

More to come.
