It comes after Victoria recorded 11 new Covid-19 cases as it approaches decision day for whether Melbourne's strict lockdown will be lifted as planned on Thursday.

The return to double digit infections was the highest number for 11 days, and comes as six train services were added to the state's growing exposure list - bringing the total to an overwhelming 354 venues.

The new locally acquired cases were announced on Monday and include two that were reported on Sunday and linked to the Arcare Maidstone aged care facility, including a 70-year-old resident.

Melburnians are currently preparing to come out of lockdown on Thursday after restrictions were extended as the state grapples with its latest Covid-19 outbreak - which now sits at 94 active cases.

It is unclear whether the latest spate of cases will dent the city's hopes of moving to eased restrictions.

During a press conference on Sunday, Victoria's Deputy Chief Health Officer Allen Cheng said officials' main concern is tracking down 'upstream' transmission.
