FILE - In this May 3, 2020, file photo, the setting sun shines on the Supreme Court building in Washington.

The court’s action won’t have any immediate impact since the two groups that sued as a result of the restrictions, the Catholic church and Orthodox Jewish synagogues, are no longer subject to them.
