Victoria has recorded its 10th day in a row of no new coronavirus cases and no further deaths, as restrictions were eased overnight.

Melburnians, for the first time in months, visited cinemas and gyms overnight or made an early start to drive out of metropolitan Melbourne as police and ADF personnel began dismantling checkpoints.

There are still four active cases in the state. There are two with an unknown source.

The 14-day average of new cases is 0.4.

From 11.59pm last night, many of Victoria's lockdown restrictions were eased.

However, masks remain mandatory outside the home and those who can work from home must continue to work from home.

Premier Daniel Andrews has also outlined the further easing of restriction from 11.59pm on November 22.

Meanwhile, global biotech company CSL will begin manufacturing millions of vials of one of the most promising coronavirus vaccines in Melbourne on Monday, in the hope trials will prove it is effective and can be rapidly distributed.
