Judge Gary Sharpe has released a preliminary injunction overturning limitations in on religious gatherings in New York State in light of Covid-19.
The injunction released by the federal judge this morning states that the loss of plaintiffs’ free exercise rights is alone adequate to demonstrate irreparable injury.
The injunction says that gathering limitations may not be applied to any indoor religious gatherings greater than those implemented for “Phase 2 industries.”
In addition, no limitations at all may be made on religious outdoor gatherings, so long as those attending adhere to Covid-19 social distancing regulations.
