Ms Neville said Victorians themselves are "fed up" with the appalling behaviour being seen in the state.

During a press conference on Saturday with Premier Daniel Andrews, Ms Neville said there's absolutely no reason, or need to drive from Melbourne to Ballarat for "fresh air".

"There's absolutely no reason to drive from Werribee out to Springvale to buy groceries".

Premier Daniel Andrews on Saturday confirmed 397 new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours and three new deaths, bringing the state’s total virus death toll to 116.

The Premier said 37 of the 397 new cases were linked to known outbreaks and 360 were still under investigation.

He said there were 5919 active cases in the state, 379 in hospital, 41 in intensive care and 24 of those on ventilators.

"I'm fed up with it, Victoria Police are fed up with it," Ms Neville said.
