The COVID-19 pandemic has altered virtually every aspect of life and created a new normal for Nashville residents.

To capture the ways life has changed, award-winning photographer John Partipilo spent several weeks in the community and the result is an eight-part series of photos.

At the popular neighborhood restaurant Lockeland Table, the pandemic has overhauled the way business is conducted and the completely changed the dining experience.

To-go food has become more prevalent and a number of safety measures have been installed inside the restaurant, including plastic barriers at the bar and free masks for diners who don’t have them, as required.
