Photos: A Month of Social Distancing in Arlington

It has been one month since local restaurants started to close and social distancing took hold in Arlington amid the coronavirus pandemic.

During that time our staff photographer Jay Westcott, along with Flickr pool contributors Kevin Wolf, Erinn Shirley, Tom Mockler, Dennis Dimick, John Sonderman and others have been documenting what everyday life looks like in our 26 square miles.

The gallery above highlights some of the photos showing desolate local streets, closed parks, and people keeping their distance, plus businesses and institutions trying to adapt and survive under difficult circumstances.

Thank you to all of the photographers out there who are helping those staying at home see what’s going on around the community.
