Two new cases were also recorded among overseas returnees who were quarantined in hotels, bringing the total number of active cases in the state to 25.
The latest figures were obtained after 23,950 tests were processed on Monday.
The Victorian Health Department confirmed that the two new local cases are family contacts of previously known Holiday Hotel cluster cases and are related to a dining event held at 426 Sydney Road, Coburg.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said that these two new cases had done what they were fighting for and they have been isolated at home.
"They are not unexpectedly positive cases, although I want to make it clear that they did get a negative test result a few days ago, and they have been in isolation, so there are no more exposure sites," he said.
"You can say that there are no other risks except that they are close contacts (of known cases).
For a complete list of places at risk of public exposure to the new coronavirus, please visit the Victorian Department of Health website.
He also said that the current five-day blockade is likely to be lifted tomorrow night.However, the final decision will be made tomorrow.
Mr. Andrew declined to speculate on whether the lockdown will be lifted tomorrow night, saying only that Victoria is currently “in a good position”.
"We will do our best to get as much data as possible to make judgments," Mr. Andrew said. "But we are in a good position."

Victoria builds "dedicated" quarantine accommodation
Victoria will establish a dedicated quarantine center to prevent large-scale outbreaks.
A Victorian delegation will visit Howard Springs Camp in the Northern Territory.
Mr. Andrews led the national cabinet debate on the need to install quarantine outside the current hotel arrangements in major cities.
He said that cabin-style accommodation is favored by the government and provides more flexible living arrangements for overseas returnees.
"There will be free air circulation. This will not be risk-free, but a small risk. The relevant work is progressing smoothly and is indeed ongoing."
"No matter where you live in Victoria, whether it is a city or a rural area, you can leave your home and escape #domestic violence during the five-day breaker operation," the department wrote on Twitter.
