Victoria has notched its 60th consecutive day of no COVID-19 community transmission cases, as the number of active cases in the state has reduced from 11 cases to seven.
There are no new coronavirus cases managed in hotel quarantine.
Health Minister Martin Foley confirmed last Monday that police checkpoints will remain in place along the Victoria-NSW border in the new year, although some residents of central Victoria will not need a permit to return home if they venture north of the Murray for a holiday.
"It's certainly not going to be this week and we'll continue to take the advice of public health officials as to when that (reopening) will be the case," Mr Foley said.
"There is no chance of the borders reopening for New Year's Eve ... we want to make sure those borders, particularly to the red zones of Sydney and the Central Coast, stay shut down."
He did not say when the border was going to reopen.
Under the current border arrangements, people who live in or have visited Greater Sydney (including the Northern Beaches) or the Central Coast in NSW in the past 14 days cannot enter Victoria.
Regional NSW is classed as a 'green zone' and travel into Victoria is still permitted, but people who have been to these areas - including returning Victorian residents - must hold a valid border crossing permit when coming into Victoria.
