The following is a letter from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to members, sent Wednesday, March 25, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
After careful and prayerful consideration, and with a desire to be responsible global citizens, we have decided to suspend all temple activity churchwide at the end of the day on March 25, 2020. This is a temporary adjustment, and we look forward to the day when the temples will reopen.
Please be assured of our sincere love and appreciation for your devotion and faith.
