Governors in 46 states around the country, along with Washington, D.C., have decided to keep schools closed through the rest of the academic year to curb the spread of coronavirus, according to CNN.

Some states have disclosed the strategies for lifting social distancing rules, while the federal government has given states guidance for reopening in phases.
