3 justices– Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito– signed on to a dissent composed by Gorsuch, who recommended they would have complied with the demand from Maine healthcare employees.

” This case provides an essential constitutional concern, a severe mistake, and a permanent injury,” Gorsuch composed “Where lots of other States have actually embraced spiritual exemptions, Maine has actually charted a various course. There, health care employees who have actually served on the cutting edge of a pandemic for the last 18 months are now being fired and their practices shuttered. All for sticking to their constitutionally safeguarded faiths.”
