A new case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Ararat.
It is the first case in the local government area since March 31.
There are still seven active cases in Horsham, though the total number of cases has increased to 11 - up from yesterday's 10.
There is one active case each in the Northern Grampians and West Wimmera local government areas.
Victoria recorded 295 new cases today - the lowest daily total since July 20.
Sadly, however, there were nine more deaths: two people in their 90s, five in their 80s, one in their 70s and one in their 60s.
Seven of the nine new deaths were linked to the aged care sector.
The total amount of active cases in Victoria now sits at 4839. 4573 of those are within metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire, while 195 are in regional Victoria.
804 cases are linked to the aged care sector and 502 are linked to the healthcare sector.
307 people are in hospital, with 41 in intensive care.
Mr Andrews said the surge in cases was largely driven by symptomatic people going to work, and urged those with even slight symptoms to get tested.
"If you are sick you must get tested and you must get tested quickly. That is the greatest thing you can do. This is largely a second wave filled by outbreaks in workplaces," he said.
"I am asking that of every single Victorian worker. I don't think that's too much to ask. If we want to get past this and move back to a 'COVID normal' you must do this."
