Mr Andrews said he had no announcements to make on Thursday but added the "red zone" in Sydney could be reduced to local government areas rather than the entire city.

Victoria on Saturday again recorded zero new locally acquired COVID-19 cases, the tenth day in a row that it has done so.

"So there has been no further transmission beyond the cleaner and the cleaner's partner, and the other family that of course was in hotel quarantine".

The same process will apply for anyone travelling from Brisbane, whether or not they live in Victoria.

There are now 26 active cases in the state, a decrease of two since yesterday.

Announcing the move, Premier Daniel Andrews said that most of Sydney was likely to follow suit "in the next couple of days".

"We will make those announcements and confirm those arrangements as soon as we possibly can".

Chief Health officer Brett Sutton said the trend in Sydney was good.

But Daniel Andrews said on Thursday the plans could go ahead with no evidence of local transmission across Victoria.

The province has also reported its first case of the South African variant of the virus, located in Vancouver Coastal Health. The health challenges that come with this virus are hard enough without also having to face stigma from those around us.

Mr Foley said the restrictions would change when the risk lowered. "I will look very intensively at the epidemiology across greater Sydney over the next couple of days", he told reporters.

Mr Foley confirmed two players - Scotsman Andy Murray and American Madison Keys - were unable to travel to Australia after returning positive COVID-19 tests.

The Victorian Government will be matching test data and permit data to ensure arrivals from orange zones get tested, Mr Andrews said.

Elsewhere, South Australia is moving to ease its hard border with Greater Brisbane from 12.01am on Sunday, January 17, with travellers no longer needing to quarantine, but will need to have COVID-19 tests on days one, five, and 12.

People in Brisbane will be allowed to travel to Victoria without needing to apply for an exemption under a relaxation of the state's border restrictions taking effect tonight.

Mr Andrews said Victorians wanting to return home and visitors would be able to apply for a permit and then travel freely after they took a test within 72 hours of arriving, and received a negative result.

"We're more than confident that our colleagues in New South Wales are mopping this up, but there have been chains of unknown transmission for many weeks now in Sydney".

People in Australia must stay at least 1.5 metres away from others.
