LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A federal appeals court has declined to block the Kentucky governor’s temporary ban on mass gatherings from applying to in-person religious services.
The three-judge panel ruled Saturday. It cleared the way for Maryville Baptist Church to hold drive-in worship services while adhering to public health requirements.
That’s an alternative Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear has encouraged throughout the coronavirus pandemic. But the panel stopped short of applying its order to in-person worship services.
