Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews says Metropolitan Melbourne is “absolutely on track” to move to the next step on Sunday September 28.

Melbourne’s rolling average as at September 21 sits at 32.8, and regional Victoria is at 1.6.

“The band that we want to be in is between 30 and 50 cases for a 14 day rolling average,” Mr Andrews said.

“To be at 32.8 now with several days to go, is a testament to the hard work and the commitment of every Victorian who is following the rules.

“And I thank them.”

The state recorded 28 new cases, and a further three deaths on September 22.

There are currently 83 Victorians in hospital, with eight of those in intensive care.

Five of those are on ventilators.
