The state administered 14,870 vaccine doses and 17,538 test results were received.

The Victorian government continues to evaluate what restrictions it could ease this week including outdoor mask rules and travel between regional cities and metropolitan Melbourne. 

A South Melbourne coffee shop and the male toilets at South Melbourne Central were added as tier-one exposure sites by health authorities on Tuesday night.

Anyone who attended Padre Coffee at South Melbourne Market on June 12 between 11.30am and 12.30pm and anyone who used the male toilets on level two of South Melbourne Central on June 12 between 1.45pm to 2.15pm need to quarantine for 14 days.
