Colorado Springs church says it has Constitutional right to open, defying state health order -

Excerpts from article:

...COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A Colorado Springs Church remains open for worship services even though there is a State Health Department order banning gatherings of 10 or more.

...The church says that it has a Constitutional right to practice their religion, even amid the public health order aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.

...Colorado Health Department officials tell KRDO this is the first example of defying the order in this manner that they've seen.

...The state health department did tell KRDO on Tuesday that local law enforcement and the state can get involved if a request from the county health department isn't enough.

...It's unclear if the El Paso County Health Department is looking into the situation at Colorado Springs Fellowship.
