It's the lowest daily increase since 41 cases were reported on June 28.
Victoria's roadmap criticised as "road to nowhere".
Premier Daniel Andrews unveiled his much-anticipated four-step plan to ease the nation's toughest coronavirus restrictions on Sunday, facing tough criticism from business groups and the federal government.
Under the plan, Melbourne's stage four restrictions will remain in place for another two weeks, though from September 14 the nightly curfew will start an hour later at 9pm and run until 5am.
People living alone will also be able to nominate a friend or family member who can visit them, while two hours of daily exercise will be allowed, including "social interactions" such as having a picnic at a local park or reading a book at the beach.
Depending on who you speak with, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is either a statesman of our times, or a dictator. The Quicky looks at the real Dan Andrews. Post continues below.
The curfew won't be lifted until October 26, with people able to leave their homes for non-essential reasons.
The lockdown will only lift on that date if the average number of new cases falls below five and there are fewer than five unknown source cases.
