As a follow-up to the March 13 letter regarding temple worship, the Church released frequently asked questions on March 16 further explaining temporary temple adjustments due to continued COVID-19 concerns.

Also, as of Wednesday afternoon, March 18, the number of the Church’s operating temples temporarily closed stands at 44.

The information regarding temple adjustments answers questions regarding permitted group size for living ordinances, missionaries receiving their endowments, distribution center operations and names on the prayer roll.

Church leaders announce additional adjustments relating to temple work

For temples that are open, living endowment and sealing ordinances will be scheduled for one family or one group at a time. A limit of eight guests may be invited (in addition to the patrons receiving the ordinance).

Missionaries who do not have the opportunity to receive their own endowment before entering the field (due to a temple closure in their area) will do so as soon as possible at a later date. They may still enter the field.
