Victoria Premier Dan Andrews announced on 24 October that Melbourne will remain in the second step of the state of Victoria’s three-step reopening plan for several more days as authorities await the results of nearly 3,000 COVID-19 tests. The tests were administered in response to a cluster of 39 cases of COVID-19. However, regional Victoria will advance to the next step in the reopening plan at 2359 local time (1259 UTC) on 27 October. Indoor gyms, fitness centers and indoor pools will be allowed to reopen with a 20-person occupancy limit. Indoor sports will be allowed for those 20 years of age or younger. Food courts will be allowed to reopen, and live music may resume in outdoor locations. Up to 20 individuals will be allowed to gather for religious observances indoors, and up to 50 individuals will be allowed to gather outdoors.
