Victoria has recorded 1,923 new local COVID-19 cases and 25 deaths as the state prepares for another easing of restrictions tomorrow.

It is the highest single-day death toll recorded during Victoria’s current outbreak.

There are now 22,189 active cases of the virus in Victoria, and 272 people have died during the current Delta outbreak.

The new cases were detected from 82,648 test results received yesterday.

There were 21,272 doses of vaccine administered at state-run sites, and more vaccinations at GP clinics and other venues.

Restrictions across the state are set to further ease when 80 per cent of its population aged 16 and over are fully vaccinated, expected to happen tomorrow.

From 6pm on Friday, masks will no longer be mandatory outdoors, non-essential retail stores and gyms will reopen and travel between Melbourne and regional Victoria will be allowed.
