Victoria has reported 11 COVID-19 deaths, as the state prepares to enter eased restrictions this weekend.
There are 301 COVID-19 patients in Victorian hospitals, a decrease on Thursday’s figure of 322.
There are 38 patients in intensive care, four of whom are on ventilators.
The state has recorded 6,580 more infections, taking the total number of active cases in Victoria to 41,125.
About 94 per cent of Victorians aged 12 and older are protected by two vaccine doses and 57.6 per cent of adults have had a third dose.
The state government has announced bars, restaurants and cafes that want to extend trading hours from 11pm to 1am will be able to do so without a change in their licence, in a bid to boost the state’s economic recovery.
