Traveling is the last thing on anyone's mind right now, or at least, it should be. Thanks to lack of travel, many airports that would normally be bustling with people right now are practically ghost towns, and some are more eerie than others. Houston's IAH airport is seriously empty right now due to COVID-19 concerns that have halted many people's travel itinerary.

For any given reason, there are still handfuls of people who have to catch flights, whether that be because they're essential workers, need to get to a family member or a number of other reasons.

Because of this, we're able to see photos of what the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, along with many other airports, looks like right now, and it's almost unreal.

Not only are many people not flying right now, but shops, restaurants, and anything else you'd typically see open in Houston's airport is shut down.

Without these, there's a severe lack of employees which adds to the emptiness. Did you ever think you'd miss airport food?

You'd think it's easy to imagine an empty airport. Maybe you've even caught a red-eye flight before and have witnessed it yourself, but for many, it's a surprising sight.

Above you can see a photo captured by a traveler with very few people walking through the typically packed corridors in the frame.

You'll even notice that the eatery to the left is completely closed, with a barrier covering every entrance to it.

Masks are a popular item to tote at airports these days, and in many photos, you'll see people doing just that. 

Above is a woman with many bags of luggage, and seemingly no one around her aside from the photographer.

On the airport's website, you can find a list of precautions they're taking to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 and keep their (very few) customers safe.
