Utah – More than 2,000 schools were prepared to close for at least one day due to COVID-19 concerns, according to Burbio, a company that tracks school data.

This week, there are 21 states with at least one school district closed or transitioning to remote learning.

As students return to classrooms, some schools might be closed for a day, others for the entire week as school districts nationwide are adjusting.

Back-to-school disruptions are the heaviest in the Northeast and Midwest, which have been hit hard by the omicron variant of COVID-19.

Including Chicago and Washington, D.C., a lot of the largest school districts in the nation are choosing to rapid test students as they head back.

In order to determine how many cases there are in the school population, Los Angeles schools are not requiring a negative test to return, but they will be testing random groups of students throughout the week.
