Barbados is introducing a visa that will allow foreigners to work remotely on its beaches
Is working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic keeping you cooped up and restless at home? Barbados’s prime minister might have the solution you’re looking for. Introducing the Barbados ‘ Welcome Stamp ‘ — a one-year work visa for foreigners looking to trade in their four walls for an island getaway. The visa, which is in its final stages of development, according to Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley last week, would “allow people from the United States, Europe, and Latin America to come and do their jobs digitally for a couple of months and then go back home, if they feel they can work better in a more relaxed atmosphere such as next to a beach.” Motley noted that current travel restrictions has made short-term travel more difficult due to testing requirements, but thanks to this visa, tourists could come and go as they please in the allotted time. “You don’t need to work in Europe, or the US or Latin America if you can come here and work for a couple months at a time; go back and come back,” she was quoted by the country’s government website . According to data compiled by the Barbados hotel and tourism sector, tourism accounts for 12 per cent of the country GDP and 40 per cent, indirectly, for its economic activity. Motley said the country will reopen to international travellers on July 12, including a twice weekly Air Canada flight from Pearson International on Thursdays and Saturdays. New COVID-19 protocol will require tourists to either present proof of a negative COVID-19 test on arrival or be subjected to testing and quarantining on arrival, if no proof is presented. Barbados has reported 98 cases of COVID-19 in total as well as seven deaths. The government has relaxed restrictions, allowing restaurants to re-open and permitting social events with up to 500 people. Physical distancing of three feet minimum is required by both tourists and residents. Re-opening the tourism sector “means that what we offer has to be world-class and what we continue to offer is world-class,” Motley added in her speech.

Trump and coronavirus task force official turn on Fauci: ‘He’s made a lot of mistakes’
WASHINGTON — Trump administration officials turned their fire over the weekend on Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House’s own coronavirus task force who has been critical of the U.S. handling of the pandemic. Several administration officials publicly challenged Fauci’s assessment that the U.S. was not “doing great” when compared to other countries’ handling of the virus. On Sunday, Brett Giroir, a health and human services official and member of the same task force, rejected Fauci’s assessment, along with his recommendation that states experiencing a new spike in cases should shut down their economies. “I respect Dr. Fauci a lot, but Dr. Fauci is not 100 per cent right and he also doesn’t necessarily, and he admits that, have the whole national interest in mind,” Giroir told Meet The Press on Sunday. “He looks at it from a very narrow public health point of view.” In two separate television interviews during the week, President Donald Trump also took aim at Fauci, telling the Fox News host Sean Hannity that he was “a nice man, but he’s made a lot of mistakes” and adding to Gray TV’s Greta Van Susteren that he disagreed with Fauci’s assessments. Fauci is both the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and, until recently, the public face of the administration’s coronavirus response. In a podcast interview with the FiveThirtyEight website on Thursday, he said some cities had done well in controlling the outbreak: “But as a country, when you compare us to other countries, I don’t think you can say we’re doing great. I mean, we’re just not.” The U.S. has a quarter of the almost 13 million coronavirus cases around the world and is experiencing a surge of infections in many states. On Sunday, White House officials provided U.S. news outlets with a list of past comments Fauci had made about the virus and its spread that they said had proven to be wrong. These included remarks he made in January in which he declared that coronavirus was “not a major threat for people in the U.S.” and that asymptomatic carriers of the virus were unlikely to be spreaders of the disease. The White House also seized on a remark by Fauci in March when the doctor played down the benefits of wearing face coverings. Fauci seemed to acknowledge tensions with the White House in a Lunch with the FT published over the weekend, in which he revealed that he had not met the president in person since June 2 and had not briefed him in more than two months. Fauci told the FT that his remarks in a March interview with Science magazine — in which he declared: “I can’t jump in front of the microphone and push (Trump) down” — had caused “a tussle”. However, the doctor said he was “sure” his messages to the president were being passed on. “I have a reputation, as you probably have figured out, of speaking the truth at all times and not sugar-coating things,” he said. “And that may be one of the reasons why I haven’t been on television very much lately.”
