Update: The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has clarified his comments on elective surgeries, with limitations only affecting residents in Stage 3 lockdown.
"This will free up beds and free up staff," he said.
Mr Andrews said the decision was to ensure hospital staff were on hand to treat residents from aged care.
