Nevada's 'unequal' treatment of churches in reopening guidelines
The Justice Department criticized Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak for treating churches "unequally" in his guidelines for reopening states.

The letter, dated Monday and written by Nevada U.S. Attorney Nicholas Trutanich and U.S. Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband, both of whom monitor civil rights disputes, echoes a letter Dreiband addressed last week to California Gov. Gavin Newsom on the same issue. In both letters, the Justice Department warns that by treating businesses and churches unequally, governments are violating the free exercise clause of the First Amendment.

"We understand these directives were issued in the midst of an uncertain situation, which may have required quick decisions based on changing information," the letter said. "We are concerned, however, that the flat prohibition against 10 or more persons gathering for in-person worship services ‚ÄĒ regardless of whether they ...

Well I looked around for the latest on the church happenings in Nevada and Colorado, Nevada might be a little more larger attendance numbers than Colorado has‚Ěó

The churches and Nevada should be happy that they at least take precedence over brothels, which are not allowed to the open yet.

Nevada will move into Phase 2 of its reopening plan on Friday amid downward trends in COVID-19 positivity test rates and hospitalizations ‚ÄĒ a transition that will allow additional venues including churches, gyms and bars to reopen.
Additionally, Sisolak announced that places of worship will be allowed to reopen their services to a maximum of 50 people attending an in-person service at a time, with strict social distancing measures in place. At least two federal lawsuits have been filed challenging the previous ban on in-person church or places of worship services. Sisolak said he ‚Äústrongly‚ÄĚ urges faith-based services to continue virtual services....

The Archdiocese of Denver released this statement: We have always believed that places of worship are essential for the freedom of worship in a civil society.
The Archdiocese of Denver, including Archbishop Aquila, have been involved in discussions with Governor Polis, his advisors and other faith leaders to help establish guidelines and protocols that would safely allow for increased attendance at places of worship for people who feel comfortable attending a religious service.

As restrictions are eased with regards to other areas of society, particular attention should be given to places of worship to allow them to serve the spiritual and emotional needs of their people.

The Archdiocese resumed limited public Masses two weeks ago, but we continue to encourage anyone who is in an at-risk group or who simply is not ready to attend public gatherings to stay home....

---"Coronavirus is taking a financial toll on Colorado’s houses of worship. But religious leaders still have faith."

Well that was just a snippet from a Denver Post article, which was quite interesting. I still don't know how many restrictions may have been lifted from Colorado places of worship.

On April 20, Colorado’s coronavirus curve was still on an upward trajectory, with some 10,000 cumulative cases reported and nearly 450 deaths. That day, the state’s Democratic first-term governor, Jared Polis, stepped in front of American and Colorado flags in the ornate Palm Room of the governor’s mansion and announced his state would be among the first to reopen its economy.

Polis’ announcement received little notice outside Colorado, but it set the state apart: He moved to lift stay-at-home orders not only well before other Democratic-leaning states, but ahead of Republican-led Georgia, Florida and Texas....
