Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said the strict restrictions will be extended for 14 days from 11:59 p.m. on September 13.
‘We can’t open up right now. If we were, we would very quickly lose control, ”he told a news conference on Sunday.

Melbourne’s difficult phase four restrictions have been extended for another two weeks, with the city’s lockdown not being fully lifted until November 23.
Mr Andrews said social bubbles will be created to accommodate Melbournians living on their own.
“So, just like the way intimate partner arrangements will work now, singles, those who live alone, will be able to work with someone else and they will be able to visit each other,” he said.
The three-mile rule doesn’t apply, but the curfew does. So it essentially extends those arrangements for partners who do not live in the same household to those who live alone. ‘
Public outdoor gatherings of two people are also permitted from 13 September and the playgrounds will reopen.
Starting September 28, subject to public health advice, public gatherings will be expanded to five people from two households.
Mr Andrews said the fourth and final step of his roadmap to recovery will go into effect on November 23, subject to public health advice.
The announcement comes as an additional 63 new infections and an additional five deaths are recorded in Victoria.
Mr. Andrews stressed the importance of slowly living a normal life in order to avoid a dreaded third wave.
‘If we open too soon, we have a very high probability, a very high probability that we won’t really open at all. We’re just starting a third wave, ”he said.
‘We can’t run out of lockdown. We must take a steady and safe step out of lockdown. ‘
