ANAL but 1) I doubt courts will stay emergency declarations and 2) "association" isn't in the First:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free expression thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Felons are often restricted from associating with other felons IIRC. BTW the word "freedom" appears exactly ONCE in the US Constitution, and that's it right there. But no freedoms or rights are absolute, as every item in the Bill of Rights has been violated with court approval. Thus are twisted knickers useless here.
