Two temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — one in California and one in Brazil — will be having a status change beginning Monday, Nov. 2.

More than 90% of the Church’s available temples have reopened after the late March closures due to the global COVID-19 pandemic — and 80% of those reopened temples are already in Phase 2 of the Church’s four-phase plan.

In the 26th week of announcing reopenings through Newsroom, the Church’s planned changes for Nov. 2 include:

  • The Porto Alegre Brazil Temple moving from Phase 1 to Phase 2.
  • The Oakland California Temple returning from a “paused” status to Phase 1 operations.

Phase 2 allows for the performance of all temple ordinances for living individuals, with Phase 1 limited to living husband-and-wife sealings.

With the change for the Porto Alegre temple, all seven temples in Brazil will be in Phase 2.
