Northern Virginia Bankruptcy Hearings Now by Phone
Bankruptcy Trustee Hearings in Northern Virginia are now done by phone.
Everyone who files bankruptcy is required to "appear" for a trustee hearing. (This is often called the "meeting or creditors," although we hardly ever see a creditor there.)
Starting April 13, 2020, the bankruptcy court is doing those by telephone. If nothing else, this saves commuting time and parking.

PS On May 29,2020, the Bankrupt Court announced that hearings will continue to be telephonic, "until further notice." https://www.vaeb.uscourts.gov/wordpress/?wpfb_dl=859
