Abattoirs are the only regional industry to fall under stage four lockdowns.
Mr Andrews said workers in select industries would be able to travel from metropolitan to regional areas, mentioning nurses in particular.
Prime Minister Scot Morrison said the government would establish a pandemic leave disaster payment for Victorian workers that needed to self-isolate and had run out of sick leave.
"What we are dealing with here is a disaster, and we need a payment for people who need to self-isolate through no fault of their own," he said. "They will be eligible for a $1500 payment for the fortnight (they need to isolate for).
He did not mention extending JobKeeper at its current rate beyond September 27.
He also said Victorians would not have to apply for jobs to access JobSeeker.
Update 3.30pm: Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews says there are 386 cases in regional Victoria overall, which Mr Andrews said was further growth on the previous day's numbers.
"There will be progressive announcements over the next few days to give people the clarity they need," he said.
Businesses in regional Victoria will also return to Stage 3 restrictions. That means restaurants and cafes can only offer delivery and takeaway. Beauty and personal services will need to close. Entertainment and cultural venues will need to close. Community sport will need to stop.
All businesses in regional Victoria going into stage three that have to close will be eligible for a $5000 grant, Mr Andrews said. This has already been available in Melbourne and Mitchel Shire, areas which are getting a second round of grants.
The premier has laid out the three levels of restrictions for businesses in metropolitan Melbourne coming into effect
The group of businesses that will not close: Supermarkets, grocery stories, petrol stations, banks, newsagencies, bottle shops, post offices and front-line response
"People do not need to be buying six week's worth of groceries," Mr Andrews said. "You will only be able to go to those closest to you."
The groups that will need to close: Retail, some manufacturing, some administration.
These decisions apply from midnight on Wednesday.
"You will no longer be able to go into Bunnings, but you will be able to collect goods without making contact with anybody. Courier delivery models will be able to continue," Mr Andrews said.
The groups that will be open at a reduced capacity: Meatworks reduce production by a third, commercial construction to drop by at least 75 per cent for projects with three or more stories, residential construction only five people on site at any one time.
These come into effect at midnight on Friday.
"There will be enough for people to get what they need," Mr Andrews said. "We are moving these industries to a pilot light phase".
"Unless we have hundreds of thousands of people at home at not going to work, we will not pull this virus up."
Stage 4 in Melbourne:
From 2 August, a curfew will be in place in metropolitan Melbourne. Curfews will be in operation from 8pm to 5am every evening, with people only allowed to leave their house for work, and essential health, care or safety reasons.

Member for Mallee Anne Webster said in a statement on Sunday she did not support the return to stage three in regional Victoria.
"Now we have the virus in the southern parts of regional Victoria, blanket restrictions are being imposed as the Premier finally starts to put stronger restrictions around Melbourne," she said.
"Regional Victoria is a powerhouse of productivity and industry, which tight restrictions and city-centric policy decisions risk damaging permanently. Because of the vital contribution that regional Victoria makes, and the risk to business viability, in conjunction with minimal and localised cases in Mallee, I join with my Federal Victorian National colleagues and do not support these blanket bans across communities 400-600 kilometres away from Melbourne."
Nationwide, there have been no new cases in Queensland in the past 24 hours, four in New South Wales and two in South Australia.
