Gorsuch has a “stomach bug,” and “out of an abundance of caution,” he will participate remotely, according to Patricia McCabe, a spokeswoman for the court. But she stressed that Gorsuch, who is vaccinated, had taken a Covid-19 test Monday and Tuesday and the results of both tests were negative.
In Tuesday’s first case, Roberts did call upon Gorsuch at one point. He spoke up from a speaker phone saying he had “no questions.” The two cases the justices are hearing concern a First Amendment case and another regarding the Federal Arbitration Act.
All of the justices are vaccinated.
