    The government of South Australia has implemented a new policy requiring Australians to use an app with facial recognition software and geolocation to prove that they are abiding by a 14-day quarantine for travel within the country. While a conservative policy expert described the policy as "Orwellian," he told Fox News that it represents an improvement over the current COVID-19 policy. Australia has banned international travel unless residents have a permit to leave the country. The country has also severely restricted travel between the six states of Australia. Residents must spend 14 days in quarantine upon return. Steven Marshall, premier of the State of South Australia (one of the country's six states), launched the quarantine app policy in late August. Residents returning from New South Wales and Victoria, two other Australian states, may spend their 14 days in post-travel quarantine at home rather than in a hotel, so long as they download and use the "Orwellian" app, developed by the South Australian government, ABC News Australia reported.

    More On: 2020 olympics Novak Djokovic is wavering on his Olympics pledge WADA fires back at AOC over Sha’Carri Richardson dope ban New Knicks guard makes wild half-court buzzer-beater during Olympic exhibition Kevin Durant was never going to miss this Olympics opportunity A Tokyo hotel has apologized amid backlash over their decision to delineate elevators with signs indicating “Japanese only” and “foreigners only.” The host city of the 2020 Olympics is preparing for its first onslaught of international tourists since the pandemic, which pushed last year’s games back by one year. The hotel claims the move was all part of their effort to ramp up COVID-19 safety measures before the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, which begin July 23. Kyodo News first reported on Sunday that the inn had been lambasted online for a brief policy that split their four elevator units into two groups between Japanese and non-Japanese people. “The virus has nothing to do with nationality,” said one netizen, according to a Reuters report on Monday, which confirmed that the signs had been removed...
    A reporter questioned White House press secretary Jen Psaki on how the Biden administration can "square" signing a multi-million dollar deal to house migrants in hotel rooms while members of the National Guard were seen sleeping in parking lot garages. “One of the options being reported over the weekend is spending $86 million on hotel rooms, for some migrants, and feeding them. How do you square that with that National Guard troops who were sleeping in parking garages and some of them got sick from having contaminated food,” the reporter, Newsmax’s Emerald Robinson, asked Monday. “That’s a disparity a lot of people are pointing out. That our National Guard was treated one way and then illegal immigrants are going to be put in hotel rooms,” Robinson added. Psaki responded that when the administration became aware of National Guard troops sleeping in parking garages earlier this year, President Biden “offered assistance, offered to play any role that he could play.” Q: How do you square National Guard troops sleeping in parking garages and eating contaminated food with illegal...
    BRITS could be stranded abroad as airlines have been warned they could be asked to stop passengers from flying if they do have their quarantine hotel booked. Ministers are understood to be considering adding a section to the passenger locator forms - which must be filled out before departure - asking if they have booked into a quarantine hotel. ????

Health Secretary Matt Hancock will announce today that the Government has struck its first deals with hotel chains to accomodate quarantining passengers. Passengers from 33 "red list" countries will be expected to quarantine at a hotel from next Monday in order to curb the spread of Covid variants from South Africa and Brazil.

    HOTEL bosses said they are ready to turn their rooms into quarantine prisons in just two days as Ministers are set to unveil their plans tomorrow. Best Western and Accor, who run Australia’s quarantine facilities, said they are ready to answer the nation’s quarantine call. ????

It means travellers arriving in the UK being required to quarantine in hotels for ten days at a cost of up to £1500 - in a bid to prevent new mutant Covid strains. It means that the foreign summer holiday would effectively be scrapped for all Brits - if Boris Johnson implements the policy across the globe. Best Western’s chief Rob Paterson said he could open up isolation units within 48 hours if a hotel is already operating. Mr Paterson said: “We could turn...
    LAS VEGAS -- One of the last Las Vegas Strip resorts to reopen after coronavirus closures will be the first to be smoke-free, MGM Resorts International announced Monday.Park MGM will prohibit tobacco smoke inside when it opens Sept. 30, said Anton Nikodemus, president and chief operating officer of the 3,000-room property that many remember as the Monte Carlo casino-hotel."We're making the facility completely non-smoking because of continued guest requests," he said. The property also includes the upscale NoMad hotel, which will open, and the 5,200-seat Park Theater, which remains closed due to a COVID-19 ban on crowds.Moving to smoke-free is hardly a gamble, Nikodemus said: "We believe there is a high level of pent-up demand to have a non-smoking casino, especially here in Las Vegas."The move by the city's largest casino employer is a turning point in a city known for neon lights and tourists lighting up even if they can't at home. Smoking and secondhand smoke has in the past sparked lawsuits and intense political debate."The tradition has been that you go to Las Vegas to do things that...
    President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Wednesday, May 20, 2020, in Washington. AP Photo/Evan Vucci For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.This may come as a surprise to those closely tracking the ethical horror show that is the Trump presidency, but the Trump Organization takes conflicts of interest and nepotism very seriously. At least that’s what it says in an employee handbook for staffers at its DC hotel, which was obtained by Mother Jones. If the handbook’s ethics policies were applied to the hotel’s owner, Donald Trump, he would likely be out of a job.  The hotel’s policy prohibiting “actual or potential” conflicts isn’t all that unusual save for the fact that Trump’s DC hotel is itself a gleaming monument to conflicts of interest where special and foreign interests can (and do!) channel money straight into the president’s pockets via hotel stays, restaurant and bar sales, and ballroom rentals. The hotel—which this week is...
    Critics of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s policy of housing the homeless in unused hotels during the coronavirus pandemic said the continued practice will both bankrupt the city and spread crime, Fox News reported on Tuesday. The policy is also being paid for by all American taxpayers, not just New Yorkers, as the Federal Emergency Management Agency agreed in April — as the Big Apple was the epicenter of the pandemic — to foot at least 75% of the costs of the $78 million initial contract signed to find hotel rooms for the homeless. Central Park Civic Association President Michael Fischer said "the crisis is only going to get worse … [and] will eventually bankrupt the city. With more and more people fleeing the city because of the homeless problem and defunding the police where they dont feel safe, the city will not have the funds to sustain this." City residents also complained about other related problems, with the New York Post reporting that at least six convicted pedophiles who are still on parole were placed in violation of the law into a hotel...
    TOKYO (AP) — Japan’s defense minister said Tuesday that officials have discovered “a number of problems” with U.S. military measures to guard against the coronavirus among service members stationed in Japan after 95 Marines tested positive at several bases on the southern island of Okinawa. Okinawan officials on Sunday said most of the cases since early July were at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, which is at the center of a relocation dispute. Others were at Camp Hansen, Camp Kinser and Camp McTureous. On Tuesday, Kadena Air Base reported two positive cases. Combined with three cases at Kadena in March, the total among the U.S. service members on Okinawa is 100, officials said. “We have discovered a number of problems,” Defense Minister Taro Kono said. “We need to more strictly scrutinize the situation with the U.S. military in Japan.” Kono said the problems were discovered after Japanese officials requested information from the U.S. military. He refused to give details, but said the problems exist at U.S. bases throughout Japan, not just on Okinawa. In a possible indication of...
