F.S. 252.64
252.64 Protection of religious institutions.
(1) For purposes of this section, the term “religious institution” has the same meaning as in s. 496.404.
(2) An emergency order authorized by this part may not directly or indirectly prohibit a religious institution from conducting regular religious services or activities. However, a general provision in an emergency order which applies uniformly to all entities in the affected jurisdiction may be applied to a religious institution if the provision is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest and is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.
