Travel bubble bursts: Up to 17 Kiwis detained in Melbourne

TRAVEL BUBBLE: First flights from NZ to land in Australia today

TRAVEL BUBBLE: First flights from NZ to land in Australia today

Victoria state officials have said they would ease restrictions when the average for new daily cases over a two-week window falls below five.

With the exception of those living in the south-eastern state of Victoria, most people in Australia are subject to only modest pandemic restrictions, with limits on gatherings the main disruption.

The acting federal immigration minister Alan Tudge had previously blamed the state government for not restricting interstate travel, which allowed the New Zealanders to breach the established travel bubble.

In terms of real estate, auctions can now proceed with a maximum of ten people, while residents will also be allowed to kick off with non-essential outdoor home maintenance, repairs and renovations.

But Mr Andrews has come under sustained criticism for imposing the strict lockdown that has risked people's mental health and dragged on the national economy. "What it means is that as so many cities across the world head into what is going to be a deadly winter, we in Melbourne and across Victoria are well-placed to have a Covid-safe summer and a Covid-normal 2021". Yes these lockdowns have come with significant pain and damage, but this strategy is working. Up to 10 people from two households can gather outdoors.

"The epidemiological conditions for a Covid Safe reopening of hospitality, movement & family reunions among others, have now been firmly met", Hunt said.

Hairdressers are set to reopen from tonight, in line with the easing of restrictions, so you'll finally be able to get that quarantine mane attended to and whipped back into some sort of shape.

Mr Andrews said the government is still waiting for Australian Border Force to provide them with the details as to where the passengers are.

"As soon as we get that detail, we will be visiting each of those people and making sure that they are fully up to date, as it were, when it comes to the rules, the regulations, the structures that we have in Victoria".

"We are right on the edge now of defeating this second wave. So this is the gold standard, apparently, according to the federal government", he told reporters.

'I, like so many other Victorians - be they in the health, legal, business or broader community - will not be silenced nor stand by as our fellow Victorians lose their liberties and have their economic livelihoods damaged, ' he said.

Mr Andrews said authorities were now making contact with each of the travellers to ensure they are aware of the coronavirus restrictions in place across the state.

'We are from Victoria and we are for Victoria'.

"I think in Australia's case, we are only a few days away to be able to say certain states are on top of (the virus) so to speak", he told Nine Network television.
