Victoria has recorded 74 new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.
Premier Daniel Andrews provided the latest update into the virus in the state on Sunday, also announcing support for residents of nine public housing units in inner Melbourne that went into hard lockdown on Saturday.
"Recognising the financial burden the lockdown will place on many estate residents, a $750 hardship payment will be provided to affected households. Those who get tested will have their payments fast tracked," he said in a statement.
"The Department of Health and Human Services will also provide two weeks of rent relief for all tenants in locked down towers.
"The Government will continue providing one-off $1500 payments to support workers who are required to self-isolate because they are diagnosed with coronavirus or they are a close contact of a confirmed case but can't rely on sick leave when missing work.
"Restrictions will be lifted when we can see we have successfully tested and tracked this virus."
Four of the new cases are linked to Melbourne public housing towers. A breakdown of the new cases by local government area is not yet available.
There have been no new active cases in the Wimmera for three months.
As of midnight 12 hours ago, the number of "hot zone" postcodes in Victoria - where residents are in hard lockdown - has expanded to include 3031 and 3051. This is in addition to previously announced restricted postcodes - 3012, 3021, 3032, 3038, 3042, 3046, 3047, 3055, 3060 and 3064.
These postcodes must follow the Stay at Home directions until 29 July 2020.
More to come.
