This story is no longer updated For the latest information on the relaxed restrictions announced today, head over to our new story

Based on the summary of restrictions released by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and recent comments from the Prime Minister that he is confident the reported changes will be made, here are some of what we are likely to see

The roadmap indicates that the Victorians will be able to welcome up to 10 visitors to their home from tomorrow

Accommodation will correspond to private gatherings, meaning that 10 people from any number of households will be able to book a vacation rental together

There should also be more freedom as to who can visit a care home, with the number of visitors expected to increase to five people from two households, with no time limit, and children will be allowed

Residents can also take excursions, but individual care facilities may need to apply their own rules, which may differ from state guidelines

More people will enjoy indoor physical recreation, which includes contact and non-contact sports, gym classes and personal training

The maximum number of subscribers will increase to 100 people, and the group or classes will be limited to 20 people, provided the space is large enough to achieve a density quotient of one person per four square meters

It should also be easier to find a spot in your local pool, with the protective cap for indoor pools increasing to 50 swimmers, and outdoor pools not having a cap at all

But indoor and outdoor pools will still face a density quotient of no more than one swimmer per four square meters

Outdoor sports and recreation, both contact and non-contact, are also expected to increase to a cap of 500 subscribers and individual groups of up to 50 people

Large sports venues could also open to 25% of their capacity, with each space subject to the one person per four square meters rule

Indoor skateparks, trampoline centers and play centers are also expected to increase their customer base to 50

Cafes, restaurants and pubs that can meet the interior density limit of one person per four square meters will be able to accommodate more guests

Outside, the limit will be increased to 200 people per room, with a density limit of one person per two square meters, which means that large reception venues with good outdoor spaces could accommodate up to ‘to 300 people at a time

However, indoor food courts will be limited to a 50 percent capacity, or a density quotient of one person per eight square meters, whichever is smaller.

Outdoor food courts are limited to 50 people per area, with a maximum of 20 people per table

Indoor venues, such as cinemas and theaters, should be able to increase their number to 100 people per space and up to 20 people per reservation

The density limit will be one person per four square meters and the rooms will probably not be able to accommodate more than 25% of their maximum capacity

Museums and galleries, where people are free to move around, should also be covered by the same limits

Arcades, amusement parks, escape rooms, electronic games and bingo centers should also be subject to the same rules

The roadmap indicates that there will be no changes regarding the compulsory wearing of face masks

M Andrews and Deputy Director of Health Allen Cheng have reported that while the masks are here to stay for the long term, due to their relatively low cost and high benefits, there may be small rule changes in the near future.

However, as of Monday, masks can be removed by clients as needed to undergo hair and beauty procedures such as facial hair removal, facials, beard trimmings and around piercings. mouth, nose and cheeks

Limits at community centers, libraries, toy libraries and indoor religious gatherings should be increased to groups of no more than 20 people, with the total number of clients capped at 100

Outdoor religious ceremonies are set to increase to groups of 50, alongside public gatherings, with a total cap of 500 locations

Weddings will see a significant increase with up to 100 people allowed to attend, provided the venue reaches the density quotient of one person per four square meters

Unless the wedding or funeral is taking place in a private residence, in which case private gathering limits of up to 10 people will apply
