New York's public schools have not started playing yet, only private schools. The public/private separation paid off for them.

Some of the states you listed have other extenuating factors. Nevada is basically Las Vegas, 70 percent of all schools are in the Vegas metro area, which is still attracting tourists. Colorado's population is concentrated between Pueblo-Colorado Springs-Denver, where the air is actually of very poor quality. 80 percent of the population lives along a narrow corridor. Not rural at all.

New Jersey's school-age population is mainly situated around the hot spot Philly/NYC metro areas, and the completely destitute Atlantic City region (thanks 80s Trump).

New Mexico is flat out poor, and has delayed sports until February. NM has a large number of schools on reservations, which have fewer medical resources and cannot afford an outbreak.

Colorado and West Virginia are practicing, and some teams have games Friday. So that leaves the west coast. Obviously CA has been a hotspot, though Oregon has far fewer cases per 100k of population and still hasn't played any games. Washington and Oregon both have committed to playing in March. Both have 60% of their state population in one metro area.
