Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) announced that schools in the state would remain closed to in-person instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. Prior to the announcement, schools in the state were closed to in-person instruction through May 20.
Forty-seven states have closed schools to in-person instruction for the remainder of the academic year. Those states account for 97.6% of the 50.6 million public school students in the country. The three states that have not are: Maryland, Montana, and Wyoming.
Of the three states that have not announced that schools will close for the remainder of the year, one has a Republican trifecta and two have divided governments.
