SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – More than two months after the coronavirus pandemic prompted the closure of their meetinghouses worldwide, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are getting ready to go back to church.

They will return in two phases based on local government guidelines, according to the church’s First Presidency.

The church will take abundant precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially surrounding the preparation and passing of the sacrament. Those precautions may include priesthood holders wearing masks, socially distanced seating, the temporary suspension of choirs and sanitizing buildings after use by each congregation.

Based on local situations, some congregations may be able to resume church meetings this weekend while others will not.
