Victoria has declared a "state of disaster" as Premier Daniel Andrews announced 671 new cases of coronavirus overnight, with seven more deaths recorded in the state.

Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews hasn't explained exactly what "stage four" will mean yet.

The new restrictions aim to limit movement and the number of people Victorians come in contact with.

Andrews said his government was deeply anxious that 49 "mystery cases" identified on Saturday could indicate the virus was spreading widely through the Melbourne community and confirmed he was in discussions with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison about tougher restrictions.

'For metropolitan Melbourne, the Year 11 and 12s will go back to working from home'.

Students of parents who need to keep working will be allowed to go to school and be supervised, but only if it is absolutely necessary, the premier said.

Movement restrictions and business operations would also be limited in the rest of the state, but not to the same level as in Melbourne. That is what these decisions are about'.

"You'll be able to have one hour of exercise, no further than five kilometres from your home", Andrews said.

Metropolitan Melbourne will have a curfew in place from 8pm AEST tonight.

The premier provided no detail at his press conference on what was being considered, but sources close to the planning process say Melbourne could move to "stage four", likely to be in force for six weeks, as early as Wednesday under the plan being considered.

'I want to ensure all Victorians supermarkets, the butcher, the baker, food, beverage, groceries, those types of settings, there will be no impact there, ' he said.

Cases of coronavirus in Victoria have reportedly climbed to another astounding high with more than 600 new infections recorded across the state.

Seventy-three of the new cases are linked to known outbreaks while 598 remain under investigation.

Victoria on Saturday reported the deaths of a man and two women aged in their 80s and 90s, plus 397 new cases, significantly less than Thursday's peak of 723.
