Victoria recorded nine new coronavirus infections and no deaths overnight as Premier Daniel Andrews pleaded for residents to 'stay the course'.

The 14-day rolling average of COVID-19 infections dropped to 11.6 for metropolitan Melbourne on Monday, while regional Victoria rose from 0.2 to 0.3.   

Mr Andrews impored residents to continue following the rules after large groups at beaches and parks flouted coronavirus restrictions in recent days.

'We are so, so close. Let's not any of us do anything that might undermine the very positive numbers,' he told reporters on Sunday.
