List of Temporary Temple Closures Reaches 40
As worldwide efforts advance to contain the spread of COVID-19, more temples that were operating on a restricted basis have fully closed, including all of the temples in the state of California, bringing the total number of closures to 40. A few that had closed before March 13 have reopened on an appointment-only basis for living ordinances. Strict limits on attendance are observed that comply with all government guidelines.
