Resources for Understanding
COVID-19’s Impact on Religious Liberty
First Liberty has put together the following resources to help you better understand the impact that COVID-19 is having on religious liberty. These resources are tailored to provide guidance for leaders in the faith community as they lead their members during this time.
These guidelines are recommendations. They are not legal obligations and should not be imposed by any government on any religious organization. If your religious organization faces enforcement, or the threat of enforcement, of any guidelines, please contact us immediately for legal assistance. We have successfully represented religious organizations across the nation against government overreach of this nature.
When can we go back to church?
First Liberty Institute is committed to ensuring that places of worship can safely balance efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 with the freedom to hold religious services consistent with their faith traditions. As America begins the reopening process, this resource can assist religious, civic, and community leaders, and places of worship, as they gradually reopen their doors.
What is a safe, compliant drive-in church service?
One of the most frequent questions we receive is whether “drive-in” style church services are safe and permissible? Drive-in services are lawful and permissible when conducted in accordance with CDC guidelines. Learn how your church can hold a safe, compliant drive-in church service.
