Some California Churches Hold Indoor Services After Ruling
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Some California churches opened their doors to worshippers, after the state revised its guidelines for houses of prayer following a Supreme Court ruling that lifted a ban on indoor services during the coronavirus pandemic.
Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office issued revised guidelines that limit attendance at indoor services in areas with widespread or substantial virus spread.
In the most significant legal victory against California’s COVID-19 health orders, the high court said the state couldn't continue a ban on indoor services, but it can limit attendance to 25% of a building’s capacity and restrict singing inside.
