"We're urgently working to fix this problem to correctly restore balances and transactions for customers as soon as possible.

"Please rest assured your true account balance and transactions will be restored and no money has been taken from your account."

Unhappy customers have taken to Facebook to complain about the outage, calling the delay in solving the issue "not good enough".

Restrictions set to ease after Victoria records 779 new COVID-19 cases

Restrictions are set to ease across Victoria from 11.59pm on Tuesday, when at least 80 per cent of the state's eligible population is expected to have had one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination.

The Premier has announced the change to restrictions after Victoria recorded another 779 new local COVID-19 cases overnight and another two deaths.

"I'm very pleased to be able to announce that it is estimated on Tuesday we will reach that 80% single-dose number," Daniel Andrews said.

"That means we can be very confident about reaching 80 per cent double-dose on the time lines we have outlined."

Mr Andrews said the "fantastic achievement" could only bring around modest changes to restrictions.

From 11.59pm on Tuesday, in regional Victoria the outdoor venue cap will increase from 20 to 30 and there will be some changes in hair and beauty and personal care.

In Metropolitan Melbourne and in regional areas that are locked down, outdoor recreational activities, such as boating, tennis, golf will be allowed.

However Mr Andrews said the activities would come with new restrictions.

"It will look different, won't be the same as pre-COVID, there will be rules."

The travel limit for exercise and shopping will also increase from 10km to 15km.

Outdoor personal training for up to five people will also be allowed if all participants and the trainer are fully vaccinated.

Restrictions around playgrounds will also be lifted.

Today's new cases

Today's 779 new COVID-19 cases take the state's total number of active cases to 8,011 active cases.

More than half of the cases - 417 - are in Melbourne's northern suburbs, while 20 of the cases are in regional Victoria.

The results come from more than 46,000 tests, while 34,000 vaccines were administered.

The state has recorded another two deaths from the virus in Melbourne's north - a man in his 80s from Moreland and a man in his 70s from Hume.

There are 325 people in Victoria in hospital with the virus, including 73 in intensive care.

Mr Andrews said four people in their 20s were in intensive care, all on a ventilator, while eight people in their 30s were in ICU.

Vaccinated economy trials

The Premier also announced plans for "a series of vaccinated economy trials in regional Victoria".

Minister for Industry Support and Recovery Martin Pakula said the trials were expected to start from 11 October at 20 trial sites in Buloke, Pyrenees, Bass Coast, Greater Bendigo, East Gippsland and Warrnambool - all LGAs with low case numbers and high vaccination rates.

"It is about seeing how our vaccinated economy system might work and we will trial that with higher patron numbers and crowds with everyone on site being confirmed as fully vaccinated," he said.

Mr Pakula said nominated trial venues would be allowed to operate at 70 per cent capacity threshold number with fully vaccinated customers.

Mr Pakula said the trials would also establish the best way for people to prove their vaccination status.
