  • Supreme Court Decision: In April 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that California may not enforce COVID-related restrictions that have limited home-based religious worship, arguing that "[w]here the government permits other activities to proceed with precautions, it must show that the religious exercise at issue is more dangerous than those activities even when the same precautions are applied." (Ritesh Tandon, et al. v. Gavin Newsom, 593 US ### (2021))
