The justices of the Supreme Court met in person this week for the first time since early March 2020, having conducted phone-in hearings for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A court spokeswoman confirmed that the nine justices met face-to-face on Friday, the first time they had done so since Mar. 6 of last year.
All of the justices have been fully vaccinated against the SARS-Cov-2 virus. The face-to-face meeting is "in keeping with recently released CDC guidelines regarding indoor gatherings of fully vaccinated people," the court spokeswoman said.
