A Georgia bar owner is pulling money off the wall to help out her unemployed staff.

The Sand Bar in Tybee Island, GA has walls lined with dollar bills, stapled there by patrons over the last 15 years.  But when the pandemic forced the bar to close its doors, owner Jennifer Knox decided to help out her unemployed workers by pulling it all down.

A total of $3,714 was collected and given to a handful of employees. Regulars chipped in with a few more donations of their own.

Knox says she plans to spend the rest of the quarantine giving the walls a new coat of paint.

The coronavirus lockdown is making the air a lot cleaner. New satellite data from NASA shows a 30-percent drop in air pollution in the northeast. Nitrogen dioxide levels are also down in some of the dirties cities like Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York and Chicago. But scientists say it won’t last long. Pollution levels are expected to rebound once travel picks back up.
