As New South Wales and Victorian pupils return to school after months of home learning, American children have faced some of the longest school closures globally since pandemic-related closures began in March 2020.

This varies significantly between each state: all California schools were closed for 353 days with another 151 days where some schools were required to be closed; Maine, on the other hand, had just 158 days with all schools closed and 25 days with some school closures.
