Victorians can expect to dine outdoors next month while students can return to school as Premier Daniel Andrews unveils his road map out of lockdown. 

Some restrictions will be eased once 70 per cent of the state’s adult population have been double jabbed’, which may include bumping up the travel limit to 25km.

While hospitality venues may finally be able to reopen, they will have strict density limits and may only allow for outdoor dining, the Herald Sun reported.

The changes will be officially announced by the Victorian premier on Sunday with more restrictions to be lifted once 80 per cent of the population have been vaccinated.

Year 12 students will head back to school during the first week in October in preparation for their final exams.

Kindergarten to Year 2 students will then follow with all remaining year groups to return after that.

Mr Andrews said the roadmap would outline how life will look for Victorians for the rest of the year. 

‘It won’t answer every question and it won’t necessarily provide every single rule change for months and months and months,’ he said.

‘It’ll be a meaningful document and it’ll give people a really clear sense of what we’re working towards.’

Once the 80 per cent target is reached, the state will open up even more with community sport, indoor dining and regional travel all on the cards.

WHAT VICTORIA’S ROAD MAP IS SET TO LOOK LIKE:

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews will unveil the road map out of lockdown on Sunday.

Restrictions expected to ease once 70 per cent of the population aged 16 and over are double vaccinated include the following:

Hospitality venues can reopen for diners but there will be strict density limits and outdoor dining may only be allowed

The limit of travel is also expected to be bumped up to 25km

Year 12 students will return to the classroom as of the first week of October

Kindergarten to Year 2 will then return to school followed by all remaining years which are due to be back by the end of October

Mr Andrews is also expected to announce a further easing of restrictions once 80 per cent are double jabbed

These include allowing regional travel for Victorians

Community sport may also be allowed once this target is hit

Customers may also be able to dine indoors at hospitality venues  

Mr Andrews is also expected to announce a third stage of eased restrictions once more than 80 per cent have received both vaccinations – which is on track for November.

Major events could also be open to the double jabbed only including the Boxing Day Test.

Melbourne has been battling its Delta outbreak since July, It was thrown back into lockdown on July 15.

Restrictions began to ease on July 27 but was thrown back into lockdown on August 5 as Covid cases began to climb.

Since then cases have continued to jump with the state recording another 535 new Covid-19 infections on Saturday – the highest number in the latest outbreak.

One person also died from the virus, authorities revealed.

Melbourne has spent 228 days in lockdown since since march 2020, and is set to notch up a grim world record for the most days spent under stay-at-home laws when it passes Buenos Aires on September 23. 

Despite case numbers climbing, up to 1,000 protesters took to the streets of Melbourne demanding an end to lockdown.

The protests turned ugly with six police officers ending up in hospital and 235 people were arrested.
