All-clear issued; schools to remain closed
The national shutdown has been lifted and an all-clear issued for Barbados.

The announcement of the all-clear was issued this morning by Acting Deputy Director of the Department of Emergency Management Captain Robert Harewood.
Schools however will remain closed today.
Meantime, the Corporate Communications Manager at the state-run Transport Board, Lynda Holder, said bus services should be back up and running in another two hours.
