Ginsburg can stay on the Supreme Court and vote, no matter how sick or disabled she becomes

Unless she is impeached for being incapacitated. 

I had asked previously about whether she is allowed to vote without being able to attend the court proceedings. The answer is yet. 

Though she was not present for oral arguments, Chief Justice John Roberts said Ginsburg would participate in the cases by reading briefs and argument transcripts.

 

In addition to reviewing relevant case material from home, Ginsburg has also voted in matters before the court. There is no written rule prohibiting justices who are missing from the bench from casting their votes.

Before her cancer surgery last month, for example, Ginsburg voted remotely to deny a request from the Trump administration to enforce its new asylum policy, according to reports.
