Operations at five temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are being adjusted, with another 30 temples prepping to move to new levels of operations and proxy ordinances offered beginning next week.

After completely closing all of its temples worldwide in late March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Church continues to reopen its temples and their operations in a careful and cautious four-phase plan.

As announced Monday, May 3, five temples will have operations adjusted this week.

Four temples in Brazil, previously paused because of local COVID-19 conditions, are resuming operations in Phase 2 and offering all living ordinances. They include:

  • Campinas Brazil Temple
  • Fortaleza Brazil Temple
  • Recife Brazil Temple
  • São Paulo Brazil Temple

Also, one temple that moved to Phase 2-B last month — offering proxy baptisms — is returning to Phase 2 operations.

  • Toronto Ontario Temple

As announced last week, three temples in the United States and England will start offering all proxy ordinances beginning May 10, with 27 temples in the U.S., Mexico, Honduras, Panama and the Philippines offering proxy baptisms in Phase 2-B on the same date.
