* Australia will continue to pursue its aggressive suppression strategy, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has told reporters in the UK, where he is attending the G7 summit as an observer.

* Mr Morrison said he would "rather be living in the arrangements we have in Australia than anywhere else in the world".

* Asked what percentage of Australians will need to be vaccinated before international travel can resume, the PM replied: "We haven't set any mark on that".

* Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley says the country is "nowhere near" ready to discuss opening up and needs to focus on firstly keeping the virus at bay through dedicated risk-based quarantine facilities.

* The state recorded one new case on Sunday - a close contact of a case linked to the Arcare Maidstone outbreak, who has been quarantining throughout their infectious period.

* Some 17,102 Victorians were tested in the 24 hours to Sunday morning, while 14,390 received a vaccine dose at state-run hubs.

* Authorities continue to investigate the single new case reported on Saturday, a man in his 30s from City of Melbourne with a young family. Six new exposure sites have been added.

* Most Australians apparently missed going into work during lockdowns. Some 70 per cent of people surveyed by Mainstreet Insights in April said they found their most meaningful and regular social connections at work - outranking even their homes and community.

* The desire to return to a group workplace is strongest among Gen-Z workers (aged 18 to 26), who also reported most impact on their mental health of coronavirus-related isolation.

* Under loosened restrictions for Melbourne, masks remain mandatory indoors and outdoors and people must stay within 25km of their homes unless working or studying, caregiving or getting a vaccine.
