Our photographers fanned out across Capitol Hill and the greater Washington area to see how our neighbors were able to celebrate Easter in the age of the coronavirus.

We found empty churches that were livestreaming services, a socially distanced Easter Bunny and a drive-in worship service in Virginia.
