    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.

    As cases of COVID-19 spiked in June, the number of residents seeking free tests at the Nissan Stadium testing site skyrocketed.

    Dozens of vehicles lined up early in the morning at the site, which just a few weeks earlier often had no lines at all.
