I thought the shut down of telescopes around the US and the world started back in 2019?

I'll help you OP:

[link to astronomy.com (secure)]
"An Astronomy magazine tally has found that more than 100 of Earth’s biggest research telescopes have closed in recent weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What started as a trickle of closures in February and early March has become an almost complete shutdown of observational astronomy. And the closures are unlikely to end soon."

or a less doomy one:
[link to www.discovermagazine.com (secure)]
"As the COVID-19 crisis continues around the planet, humanity’s gaze is firmly fixed on the pandemic playing out around us. Meanwhile, more than 100 of Earth’s largest research telescopes have been forced to shutter their doors, Astronomy magazine reported this week.
It’s the perfect time for an asteroid to strike, many space fans deadpanned in reply.
But there’s no need to worry about an incoming asteroid — not any more than usual, at least. Despite the closures, Earth’s top asteroid-hunting instruments remain on the prowl for potentially deadly space rocks."

Right. Most of them shut down because of covid but not all. Doesn't make much sense to me but thats what all the articles I found stated.
