People will only need to wear a mask at supermarkets, public transport, domestic flights, commercial passenger vehicles, hospitals and large indoor shopping centres after Victoria recorded its eighth day in a row of zero locally transmitted cases from more than 16,000 tests on Thursday.

People travelling from orange zones can apply online for a permit to enter Victoria.

The person is not linked to a known case or public exposure site and will remain in isolation until they receive the results of further tests.

"There's a specific window where we believe there is some chance that because of the infections that have already been recorded in hotel quarantine, between staff and residents, and it is that United Kingdom strain, without any other link ... circumstances are very much based on each person's travel movements and when they were in hotel quarantine". "So we will boost our testing capacity, but again there will be queues, there will be lines, just like there is every single day", Mr Andrews said. There are 29 active cases of COVID-19 across the state.

Premier Daniel Andrews said the region would be downgraded from a red to an orange zone after Queensland appeared to have contained the spread of the latest COVID-19 cluster.

"I wish I could make those announcements today but we are simply not in a position".

Mr Foley said the restrictions would change when the risk lowered.

Young also claims that Dre punched her in the head on two occasions and even kicked down her bedroom door when she was in there. She goes on to argue that Dre should pay for all her and her mom expenses in the manner he did during the marriage.

"There are clearly some local government areas within Greater Sydney that have now gone a number of days of cases without transmission", he said.

"I will look very intensively at the epidemiology across Greater Sydney over the next couple of days, but there are obviously some hotter areas in the west of Greater Sydney, but other local government areas that have had little to no transmission in the last week or the last two weeks".

The announcement will come in the next day or two, Mr Andrews said.

Meanwhile, from 12.01am on Sunday, travellers from Greater Brisbane will be able to enter South Australia without needing to quarantine but must be tested for the virus on days one, five and 12 of their stay.

Arrivals need to get tested for COVID-19 within three days of arriving in Victoria, but only need to isolate until they get a negative result.

The variant of the virus is causing havoc in the United Kingdom with thousands of new cases reported daily and forcing the country to slam borders shut to travellers - particularly to South America where yet another highly contagious variant has been discovered.
