Victoria has recorded 705 new cases of COVID 19 and deaths.
This figure comes from 51,252 test results according to the DHHS.
Health officials say 29, 657vaccine doses were administered in the 24 hours to Saturday evening.
The figures follow a difficult weekend with two new cases in Ballarat and four new exposure sites.
However no new exposure sites were added to the DHHS website for periods during the week late on Sunday.
This followed a record Saturday announcement with Victoria recording 847 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases and 779 on Sunday and another death from the virus.
Restrictions, including a return to golf and tennis, will ease slightly across the state on Wednesday, with Victoria expected to pass 80 per cent single dose vaccination coverage on Tuesday.
Premier Daniel Andrews said while the changes were "modest", the state is getting closer to the end of lockdown.
Residents of locked down areas will be able to travel 15km from home, up from 10, while patron caps in regional venues will increase from 20 to 30.
There was also good news for the city of Geelong, which will be released from lockdown at midnight, despite the diagnosis of six new cases on Saturday.
All cases were linked.
A series of "vaccinated economy" trials were also announced on Sunday, to begin across some regional Victorian businesses from October 11.
Select businesses in Buloke, Pyrenees, Bass Coast, Bendigo, East Gippsland and Warrnambool will test systems in the fortnight before Victoria is due to hit the 70 per cent double dose vaccination mark.
The 20 trial sites will be selected based on vaccination rates and case numbers.
Among the issues to be explored during the trials are vaccine status verification and how to help businesses safely deal with aggressive customers who are denied service.
V/Line train services return to a full timetable for all services on all lines on Monday after a COVID-19 outbreak that limited services and saw buses replace trains on some lines.
Another 779 new locally acquired COVID-19 infections and two further deaths were reported on Sunday. The state is now host to more than 8000 active cases.
