RESTRICTIONS in regional Victoria will ease from 11.59pm on Thursday night.
Metropolitan Melbourne will also come out of its extended circuit-breaker lockdown and move onto restrictions similar to those in regional Victoria.
The snap lockdown was initially slated for seven days, with the extra week added for the metro area as cases linked to the outbreak continued to be found.
Acting premier James Merlino announced the changes on Wednesday morning.
Regional Victorian changes
From midnight Thursday, regional Victorians will be allowed to have visitors to homes, with a limit of two adults a day plus dependents.
Public gatherings will be increased to 20 people.
Restaurants and cafes can open to a maximum of 150 people for seated service, including up to 75 allowed indoors.
Religious ceremonies will be capped at 150 people, with no more than 75 people allowed indoors. Funerals will be limited to 75 people, while weddings will be limited to 20.
Community sport is back for all ages, both for training and for competition in regional Victoria.
Changes for Melbourne
A 25-kilometre travel limit from home will be in place, with travel prohibited to regional Victoria for the Queen's Birthday long weekend.
The five reasons to leave home will no longer apply.
Schools will be able to resume face-to-face learning from Friday.
Masks will no longer be required outdoors unless people cannot maintain a 1.5-metre distance. Funerals are limited to 50 people and weddings are limited to 10. Religious ceremonies will be capped at 50 people inside a venue.
When will additional restrictions ease?
Mr Merlino said subject to public health advice and epidemiological conditions throughout the next week, he expected more restrictions to ease from Thursday, June 17.
He said if all went well the regional-metro divisions would come down.
"We'll continue to assess the data each day and provide more detail, more certainty, as soon as we can," he said.
The easing of restrictions in both metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria come as the state recorded just one new COVID-19 case on Wednesday.
The single infection was detected in the 24 hours to midnight on Tuesday.
