Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton told reporters on Saturday he believed the state was "on track" to come out of lockdown on Tuesday night.
"I expect there will be further cases. I expect there would be new cases right through to Tuesday. They should be decreasing over time.
"There are no magic numbers (to come out of lockdown). There has never been a magic number and they never will be.
