Here's today's order list: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/011822zor_5iel.pdf
The court doesn't add any new cases to its docket, and takes no action on major pending petitions involving affirmative action in higher education & religious objections to nondiscrimination laws meant to protect LGBTQ people.
As she did last week, Sonia Sotomayor will participate in this week's arguments remotely, SCOTUS says. @NinaTotenberg reported this morning that Sotomayor's decision is the result of Neil Gorsuch's refusal to wear a mask on the bench. All other justices have agreed to wear masks.

JUST IN: The Supreme Court agrees to take up five new cases, including an appeal from a high school football coach who lost his job after he prayed on the field.
#SCOTUS will have more opinions next Thursday at 10 am.
