Supreme Court Limits Courtroom Access Due to COVID

Will live stream oral hearing audio for the general public.

The Supreme Court announced early this week that access to the courtroom would be restricted due to the rising COVID-19 cases. Full-time reporters will still be allowed to be present for oral arguments, as will all essential Supreme Court staff and case members. Though the restriction is only scheduled for the month of April, it will be ended or extended according to the current public health guidance.

“The Court will provide a live audio feed of the April oral arguments. A link to the live audio feed will be available on the homepage of the Court’s website,” the Supreme Court’s statement concluded. “The Court building remains open for official business only and closed to the public until further notice.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the Supreme Court as health guidance is followed.
  • For justices of the Supreme Court as they hear oral arguments and deliberate cases.
  • For God’s protection of the health of the Supreme Court justices.
