Golf, boating and tennis are now allowed in Melbourne.
Victorians will have to wait a while to reach the next stage of the state’s reopening roadmap.
The next phase of restriction easing is triggered at 70 per cent fully vaccinated, which isn’t due to be happen until late next month.
When that threshold is met, the lockdown will officially end in Melbourne, with hairdressing and outdoor dining allowed, but only for those double-dosed.
