The U.S. Supreme approved injunctive relief on Friday to immediately allow indoor religious services in Santa Clara County, California.
"The Ninth Circuit's failure to grant relief was erroneous," the Supreme Court's order reads. "This outcome is clearly dictated by this Court's decision in South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom."
Appeals to the decision are pending, but should they reach the Supreme Court, it appears the majority favors allowing churches to reopen.
In "South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom," the Supreme Court ruled indoor religious services in California may resume at 25% capacity with no singing and chanting.
In both cases, Justices Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.
