In a 5-4 decision late Wednesday night, the Supreme Court blocked enforcement of New York’s coronavirus-related limits on attendance at churches and synagogues. The unsigned opinion argued Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order singled out places of worship for greater restrictions than for businesses in the same areas. “The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty,” the opinion said.
