Barbados' streets have been free and clear during curfew hours outside of supermarket and banking times.

Black belly sheep wandering through Barbados' capital city of Bridgetown down Trevor's Way; the Constitution River Van Stand free of noise pollution and air pollution; the water in the Careenage is clearer and; the litter along beaches is almost nonexistent.

Just as the reports from around the globe speak to the Earth renewing and breathing, this coral limestone Gem in the Caribbean Sea is showing signs of rejuvenation as well.

Barbados during 24-hour curfew

Majority of the non-essential workers are getting rest, while the essential workers are on the frontlines helping to tackle and contain the spread of COVID-19 in the hospitals, supermarkets, hardwares, bakeries, gas stations, fire stations and police stations.

On this International Workers' Day 2020, for the first time in decades, unionised workers did not take to the streets for May Day celebrations, but we are not forgetting our service providers, Loop salutes all workers today!
