I am not sure if this is still currently happening in Bahrain but I have heard of them getting pretty out of control since COVID started. A friend of mine here in the UK has been waiting to visit family in Bahrain but she is concerned about traveling alone during high levels of conflict on the streets. Does she still need to be concerned?

Generally, this is not something you have to worry about. It can end up delaying you if they take to the streets but they mostly leave tourists alone. I found this on the government website:

Demonstrations and protests can take place occasionally. This may include attempts to disrupt traffic, disturbances in villages and near economic centres. These occasionally result in localised clashes between government security forces and protesters. Anniversaries of significant events in Bahrain sometimes carry an increased risk of protests, which can start with little warning. Locations where such incidents have taken place in the past include Sitra, Bani Jamra, Karbabad, Saar, Karzakan, the Budaiya Highway and surrounding villages.

While there have been no direct threats or attacks on British nationals to date, you should remain vigilant, follow the advice of the local authorities and be aware of your surroundings wherever you are on the island.

This is from their own government official website? 

I guess this puts my mind at ease a bit more. She didn't see very worried at all and I am prone to having anxiety so I tend to worry too much!
