Victoria has recorded 17 further cases of coronavirus as two primary schools close in Melbourne's COVID-19 hotspots.
Premier Daniel Andrews said 11 of the new cases were under investigation and there would be "significant community transmission" among the new cases.
One of the new cases was from a person in hotel quarantine, two were from known outbreaks and three were from routine testing.
Brunswick East Primary School in Moreland and Keilor Views Primary School in Brimbank have both been closed for a deep clean after students from both schools tested positive to COVID-19.
Moreland and Brimbank are two of six local government hotspots, identified yesterday by the State Government, where there is high community transmission of the virus.
Mr Andrews said the pandemic was "not over" and implored people to maintain physical distancing, to not shake hands or greet others with hugs and kisses.
"If you're sick you can't go out. If you even have just mild symptoms, you have to come forward and get tested and if you're asked to quarantine you need to do as you are asked," he said.
"If people don't do the right thing... and spend a modest amount of time with others, it is almost certain they will give the virus to other people."
