Photos: Here’s What Tysons Looks Like When People Stay Home

What does Tysons look like when people stay home? Tysons Reporter has been asking readers to share their photos of the Tysons area during the coronavirus pandemic.

From reader-submitted photos, it appears from the empty highways that people are staying inside and staying 6 feet away from each other — a.k.a. social distancing — when they do go outside.

The photos in this article were submitted by readers this month, capturing Tysons’ barren urban environment paired with cloudy days, sunrises and blooming flowers.

Now that Gov. Ralph Northam has issued a stay-at-home order, places around Tysons are likely to become even more deserted.

Several people snapped photos inside Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria, capturing their ghost town vibes:

Currently, the interior of Tysons Galleria is closed, while stores and restaurants with exterior-facing entrances can remain open. Meanwhile, Tysons Corner Center is open.

Meanwhile, Ed Schudel snapped a photo of what appears to be a shower curtain serving as a barrier between the cashier and customers at the 7-Eleven on Old Chain Bridge.

Northam’s most recent order means that businesses can stay open if they can keep less than 10 customers in their spaces.

Northam’s orders also affect restaurants by not allowing them to have sit-down dining during the pandemic. To stay open, several eateries around the Tysons area have pivoted to offering pick-up and delivery options for diners.

Earlier this month, our staff photographer Jay Westcott captured what the major highways in Tysons looked like with fewer cars.

Here are more photos from Westcott:
