Tennessee has most school closures due to pandemic this year, followed by Texas, Georgia, Kentucky

The CDC conducted a study that determined which states have the most school closures so far this year, and Tennessee has had the most.

Over 400 schools in the state have had to close for at least a day.

The other top states for most school closures included Georgia, Kentucky, and Kansas.

Tennessee and Texas have blocked schools from implementing mask mandates while Kentucky and Georgia left the decision up to the districts themselves.

Variables in the study include school opening earlier in the south, with a longer chance for COVID to spread when compared to other states.

900,000 students have felt the impact of school closing due to the virus, and the CDC urges everyone to get vaccinated and practice safety with masks and social distancing while in school to stop the spread.
