If overall risk remains mitigated for 14 days, we transition the county to the green phase.The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay-at-home and business closure orders to allow the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.While this phase facilitates a return to a “new normal,” it is equally important to continue to monitor public health indicators and adjust orders and restrictions as necessary to ensure the spread of disease remains at a minimum.Work and Congregate Settings RestrictionsContinued Telework Strongly EncouragedBusinesses with In-Person Operations Must Follow Updated Business and Building Safety RequirementsAll Businesses Operating at 50% Occupancy in the Yellow Phase May Increase to 75% OccupancyChild Care May Open Complying with GuidanceCongregate Care Restrictions in PlacePrison and Hospital Restrictions Determined by Individual FacilitiesSchools Subject to CDC and Commonwealth GuidanceSocial RestrictionsLarge Gatherings of More Than 250 ProhibitedMasks Are Required When Entering a BusinessRestaurants and Bars Open at 50% OccupancyPersonal Care Services (including hair salons and barbershops) Open at 50% Occupancy and by Appointment OnlyIndoor Recreation, Health and Wellness Facilities, and Personal Care Services (such as gyms and spas) Open at 50% Occupancy with Appointments Strongly EncouragedAll Entertainment (such as casinos, theaters, and shopping malls) Open at 50% OccupancyConstruction Activity May Return to Full Capacity with Continued Implementation of ProtocolsThe latest business guidance, including outdoor recreation guidance, can be found here.Preliminary sports guidance can be found here.Summer camp guidance can be found here.The Governor’s amended green phase order can be found here.The Secretary of Health’s amended green phase order can be found here.Ver esta página en español.

Cairns real estate: Low supply, high demand fuels property market surge

PICTURE: STEWART McLEANCAIRNS has recorded the third highest jump in house prices in the country in the 12 months to January 2020, according to the latest Quarterly Regional Market Update from CoreLogic.The city recorded an annual growth of 4.2 per cent, beaten only by Illawarra in NSW and the Gold Coast. The positive news came as the report showed property values increased in 23 out of 50 separate house and unit markets over the past year.The report analysed property market performance across Australia’s largest non-capital city regions.There were also 4915 property sales in Cairns during the year which was 4 per cent lower than a year ago and 7.5 per cent lower than the five-year region average.RE/MAX Cairns agent Mat Foley said there was still high demand for properties “right across the board” in the city.“Most properties we are selling are in multiple offer situations, so excluding external forces (the high sale figures), the trend should continue,” he said.“Fundamentally a lack of supply of properties to the market and an increase in buyer numbers have driven the price rise.More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days ago“The increase in buyer activity is due to two things, a downturn in rental vacancies which has forced many tenants to consider purchasing as well as government regulators relaxing the banks’ benchmark servicing rate, which has resulted in a spike in investor activity.“There is really strong demand for homes up to $500,000 with a lot of buyers looking for larger blocks within 20 minutes of the city centre.”The CoreLogic report found houses outperformed apartments overall with house prices rising in 15 regions compared to unit value gains in only eight regions. “As housing affordability becomes a resurgent issue in 2020, capital city residents may once again seek relatively affordable housing in nearby regions, or regional areas with high levels of amenity,” CoreLogic head of residential research Eliza Owen said.last_img read more
