But he has admitted it was unlikely big steps would be taken as the state's second wave of COVID-19 is proving to be 'stubborn'.

The state recorded two new cases of COVID-19 and no new deaths from Thursday to Friday.

The 14-day rolling average in metropolitan Melbourne has dropped to 8.9 while the two-week average in regional Victoria is 0.6.

There are now 157 active cases in the state - a figure that was last recorded on June 7. Of the active cases, 17 are mystery cases that are not traceable.

According to the current roadmap, Melbourne will move to the third step of restrictions when the daily average number of cases in the last 14 days is less than 5 statewide and there are less than 5 cases with unknown sources in the last 2 weeks.
