Victoria records 1036 new local coronavirus cases as 80 per cent vaccination target reached



Victoria has recorded 1036 new local coronavirus infections as the state manages to reach a crucial vaccination target.

Victoria has recorded 1036 new local coronavirus infections as a crucial vaccination milestone was reached.

There were 12 new deaths associated with Covid-19 in the state.

The Sunday numbers come as Victoria clinched a 80 per cent double dose vaccination target.

Eased restrictions linked to the vaccination milestone were eased two days early, on Friday.

Those relaxed rules meant shops, gyms and other retail businesses could reopen.

Masks were also scrapped outdoors and most indoor settings – including restaurants, pubs, gyms and hairdressers – opened with no caps if all staff and patrons are fully vaccinated.

Most outdoor settings now have a limit of up to 500 people, where staff and patrons are fully vaccinated.

The same indoor and outdoor settings now also apply to host weddings, funerals and religious gatherings if all attendees are fully vaccinated, with caps of 30 people for weddings, funerals and religious gatherings if vaccination status is unknown.

More to come.
