SALT LAKE CITY — The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square has canceled a rehearsal and live taping this Sunday – something that hasn’t happened since the pandemic.
Instead, the choir this Sunday will air an episode it taped on its trip to Mexico.
The cancellation comes a week after The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints choir kicked off its world tour in Mexico.
A spokeswoman for the church said a couple of members caught COVID-19 on their trip to Mexico. They were isolated and treated, but since arriving back in Utah more choir members tested positive.
Other members also have travel-related gastrointestinal illnesses.
A church spokeswoman said canceling the rehearsal and taping will give choir members time to recover and will prevent the further spread of illnesses.
