Future steps of lifting restrictions will now be guided by public health advice and case numbers, without needing to wait for certain dates on the calendar.

On Sunday, Premier Daniel Andrews urged Victorians to keep getting tested if they had symptoms so that authorities could keep track of any coronavirus infections in the community.

"We are at least a week ahead of schedule but we must wait and see how things unfold over the next three weeks, and then make those decisions and speak about likely timeframes in November," he said.

"This is a strategy that is designed to get us to a COVID-normal Christmas."
