Legal headway is opening opportunities for churches to hold services during one of the most important Christian celebrations of the year—Christmas.

Los Angeles County Health Department has finally dropped the county’s unconstitutional COVID restrictions on religious gatherings and removed attendance caps on worship, effective since Dec. 19.

LA County Public Health Department issued a revised temporary order that specifies that houses of worship in Los Angeles can now conduct services indoors with no numerical or percentage caps and only social distancing between separate households.

“We are grateful for the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings that are resulting in the unconstitutional worship bans falling like dominoes,” said Liberty Counsel founder and Chairman Mat Staver. “The Supreme Court has made it very clear that the courts and the states must begin applying the First Amendment to protect houses of worship. No pastor, church or parishioner in America should have to choose between worship and prison.”

Liberty Counsel represents Harvest Rock Church, which has two campuses in Los Angeles County, and Harvest International Ministry, with more than half of the member churches in the same county.
