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.

Five Agaves, a Mexican food restaurant in Old Hickory, has seen its business model overhauled by the pandemic, with a rise in to-go orders and diners eating outdoors.

The drive-through window has been especially popular as more customers choose to eat their food in the safety of their own home.

As with other restaurants, staff generally wear masks all the time and diners are required to do so other than when they’re seated and eating.
