Victoria has recorded its first day without any virus cases in 139 days as pressure mounts on Daniel Andrews to ease restrictions.
Victoria has recorded no new coronavirus cases for the first time since June 9.
Melbourne's 14-day rolling average is well below the safe threshold of five, falling from 4.6 to 3.6 overnight. There are seven cases from an unknown source.
Regional Victoria's 14-day rolling average is just 0.2
Despite the low numbers Melbourne remains under lockdown, with Melburnians only able to travel within a 25km radius and only able to leave home for four essential reasons.
Premier Andrews was set to ease restrictions on Sunday, but a virus cluster across Melbourne's northern suburbs forced the government to delay over fears infections would blow out of control.
While some restrictions were eased in regional Victoria, there was no joy for Melburnians on Sunday with the Premier saying a "cautious pause" was needed due to the outbreak.
"I know it's very frustrating," he said.
"We'll keep people updated today, and tomorrow."
But the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed no new additional cases were linked to the northern metropolitan outbreak after more than 1135 test results were returned on Sunday night.
In a Monday morning update, DHHS said nearly 15,000 tests since last Tuesday were providing "the best possible insight" into the movement of coronavirus across the northern suburbs.
Testing commander Jeroen Weimar said no new cases linked to the northern metropolitan outbreak was "one of the best outcomes we could hope to see".
"We have results for the 2100 people who got tested yesterday and there are hundreds more samples going through the labs over the course of the day," he said.
"Their commitment is a massive contribution to identifying what we hope are the very few remaining cases of Covid-19 in Melbourne.
"Testing continued into the evening last night and we expect to see those results come through today. Testing in these five communities will continue to be a focus."
There are currently 39 cases linked to the outbreak, including cases associated with East Preston Islamic College and Croxton Special School.
DHHS continues to investigate links between the outbreak and other positive cases within the area.
The news has prompted new hope restrictions across Melbourne could be eased early this week.
Andrews will front the media later on Monday.
