Latest temple updates: Phase 1 reopenings at 115, including in Los Angeles, Seattle, Canada and Brazil

With the latest announcement of six temples identified for Phase 1 reopening on July 13, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has 115 of its 168 operational temples worldwide open or scheduled to be open for limited operations.

The six announced Monday, July 6, to resume limited living husband-and-wife sealing ordinances include the first two to reopen in the state of Washington after closure in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Others temples are Canada’s final two to reopen, a second in Brazil and the Church’s oldest temple in California.

The six scheduled for July 13 reopening are the Seattle Washington, Spokane Washington, Halifax Nova Scotia, Montreal Quebec, Porto Alegre Brazil and Los Angeles California temples.

Of the Church’s 53 operating temples still closed, seven are closed for major renovations.

In the United States and Canada, only three temples remain closed due to the pandemic — the Chicago Illinois, Columbia River and Oakland California temples, with the Mesa Arizona, Salt Lake, St. George Utah and Washington D.C. temples closed for renovation.

Phase 1 temple reopenings to date by Church area include:

  • 82 of the 89 temples in the six North America and Utah areas, with three closed and four under renovation.
  • 10 of the 14 temples in the two Europe areas, with four closed.
  • Nine of the 12 temples in the Pacific and Philippines areas, with two closed and one under renovation.
  • Four of the five temples in the two Africa areas, with 1 closed.
  • Four of the six temples in the two Asia areas, with two closed for renovation.
  • Four of the 21 temples in the Brazil and two South America areas, with 17 closed.
  • Two of the 21 temples in the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico areas, with 18 closed.

In all, Phase 1 reopenings have occurred or will be occurring in 26 nations and 34 states.

After a six-week period where all Church temples were closed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the First Presidency announced its four-phased temple-reopening plan via a letter sent to general and local leaders dated Thursday, May 7.

The phases are:

  • Phase 1: Open for restricted living sealings only. Temple workers will perform living sealings only for previously endowed members, with the ordinances done under strict guidelines and safety precautions.
  • Phase 2: Open for all living ordinances only. Temple workers will perform all temple ordinances for living individuals, but temples will maintain closure of patron housing, clothing, and cafeteria operations.
  • Phase 3: Open for all ordinances with restrictions. Temple workers will continue providing ordinances for living individuals and provide proxy ordinances for ancestors in a restricted manner. The Church will open patron housing, clothing, and cafeteria operations as needed.
  • Phase 4: Open for full operations. The Church will resume regular temple operations.
