Melbourne will come out of lockdown on Thursday night but travel from the city to regional areas is a “no go” for another week, after the state recorded one new case of Covid-19.
The two-week lockdown will end at 11.59pm on Thursday but Melburnians must stay within 25km of home, meaning travelling for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend is not allowed.
