WASHINGTON(USA Today)– The Supreme Court ordered California judges Thursday to follow its lead in blocking stringent coronavirus restrictions on houses of worship, as the high court did in a New York case last week.
The justices’ unsigned order sending a California church’s challenge back to lower courts likely will stop Gov. Gavin Newsom from prohibiting most indoor religious services.
Religious groups had complained that “indoor worship services are completely prohibited for 99.1% of Californians” while “food packing and processing, laundromats, and warehouses have no capacity limits, liquor and grocery stores have a 50% capacity, and big box centers, shopping malls, laundromats, and destination centers have a 25% capacity.”
