In regard to governor's order for social distancing for places of assembly of 10 or less, the question should be: Does this order affect Freedom of Religion or Freedom from Religion regarding life safety and health issues?

Freedom of religion doesn't exempt places of worship assembly for life safety and health issues, such as illegal weapons, building codes and building permits. Religious groups are exempted from income taxes, sales tax and building accessibility regulations.

The governor's order has absolutely nothing to do with Freedom of Religion.
