Victoria has recorded 723 fresh cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours.

It’s easily the worst figure recorded in the state since the pandemic began.

Another 13 Victorians have died with the coronavirus.

At this stage, 10 of those 13 deaths have been connected to aged care.

There have now been 105 COVID-19 deaths in Victoria since the pandemic began.

There are 312 Victorians battling COVID-19 in hospital, including 34 people receiving intensive care.

Premier Daniel Andrews said there were 5385 active cases in Victoria, 255 of those in regional areas.

It’s led to an expansion of restrictions.

From 11.59 on Sunday, face coverings will be mandatory for ALL of Victoria.

Those in Geelong and surrounds will no longer be able to have visitors in their homes from 11.59pm tonight.

That includes Greater Geelong, the Surf Coast, Golden Plains, Colac-Otways, Moorabool and the Borough of Queenscliffe.

They can, however, still visit restaurants, cafes and gyms.
