The Melburnians will still not be allowed to leave their homes for non-essential reasons for another three weeks, despite the 9 p.m. curfew lifted to 5 a.m. on Monday.

Scott Morrison has called on Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews to review his roadmap which requires five daily cases to move to step three and zero new cases for the final leg of easing restrictions.

“Relaxing restrictions in Victoria in a COVIDsafe manner is vitally important so that more Victorians can return to work and resume their normal lives,” the Prime Minister said in a statement.

“Today’s announcement is a small but important step in that direction. It will be important that more is done in the coming weeks to safely ease more restrictions.

Townspeople have slept through their last night of curfew as the Victorian government lifts the controversial lockdown measure.

They lived with the 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. nighttime curfew for eight weeks in an effort to bring the state’s devastating second wave under control.

But it will be repealed from 5 a.m. Monday under the general relaxations of the rules unveiled Sunday.

Mr Andrews said lifting the curfew did not mean people could hold private gatherings indoors or outdoors, with those arrested facing a fine of $ 5,000.

“No one has the right to jeopardize everything the Victorians have done by going and potentially spreading the virus from one family to another,” Mr Andrews said.

A trial challenging the legality of the curfew under the state’s human rights charter was scheduled for Monday in the Supreme Court.

The Prime Minister denied the decision to repeal it, prompted by the lawsuit.

At 11:59 p.m. Sunday, 127,000 people can return to work, nearly 30,000 more than initially expected.

Other rule changes include reopening childcare services, allowances for outdoor gatherings of up to five people from two households, and lifting a purchase limit of one person per household per household. day.

Melbourne’s two-hour exercise limit and 5km travel restriction remain, although Mr Andrews has announced full freedom of movement could come on October 19 ahead of the AFL’s big weekend.

He urged the Victorians not to let their guard down, saying the virus would be unleashed if people claimed the second wave was over.

Victoria reported 16 new cases and two more deaths on Sunday, bringing the state’s death toll to 784 and the national figure to 872.

Melbourne’s 14-day case average has fallen to 22.1, while regional Victoria’s is just 0.6.

There are 399 active cases in the state, the first time that number has fallen below 400 since June 30.
