Latest temple updates: 2 in South America to reopen, but COVID-19 conditions ‘pause’ or downgrade 15 in US, Canada, Mexico, England and Australia

Just as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reached having all but two of its temples worldwide reopened since COVID-19-caused closures, local pandemic conditions have resulted in the downgrading or pausing operations of more than a dozen previously reopened temples.

By Monday, Dec. 7, the Church will have reopened 158 of its possible 160 available temples in limited operations.

However, in the 31 weeks of reopening temples following total closure in late March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the latest changes in temple status — as announced Monday, Nov. 30, on Newsroom — include the largest group of temples to date either being downgraded from Phase 2 to Phase 1 or pausing operations because of local COVID-19 conditions.

The latest changes include two South America temples reopening in Phase 1 and one Central America temple being upgraded from Phase 1 to Phase 2.

The Dec. 7 temple updates include the following temples reopening in Phase 1:

  • Barranquilla Colombia Temple
  • Caracas Venezuela Temple

And the following temple upgrading to Phase 2:

  • Guatemala City Guatemala Temple

Meanwhile, five Canadian temples being downgraded from Phase 2 to Phase 1 because of local COVID-19 conditions include:

  • Calgary Alberta Temple
  • Cardston Alberta Temple
  • Edmonton Alberta Temple
  • Regina Saskatchewan Temple
  • Vancouver British Columbia Temple

Two temples announced earlier as being downgraded are actually remaining in Phase 2 operations — the Baton Rouge Louisiana and Cebu City Philippines temples.

And the 10 additional temples being added to the list of temples having “paused” operations because of local COVID-19 conditions and restrictions include:

  • Adelaide Australia Temple
  • Ciudad Juárez Mexico Temple
  • Colonia Juárez Chihuahua Temple
  • Fresno California Temple
  • Halifax Nova Scotia Temple
  • London England Temple
  • Newport Beach California Temple
  • Oakland California Temple
  • Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple
  • Preston England Temple

The pausing of the three California temples, the two in England and the Halifax and Philadelphia temples were originally announced; the two Mexico and one Australia temples were added later that day.

Having temple operations paused or returned to a previous status because of local pandemic conditions or precautions has happened with a handful of temples previously, including temples in California and Mexico. Until the most recent announcement, there were only four currently paused temples, all in California.

With the recent additions, the list of 14 paused temples include all seven of the Church’s temples in California and both temples in England, as well as two temples in northern Mexico and one each in Australia, the state of Pennsylvania and the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.

The reopening of the temples in Barranquilla — the second in Colombia — and Venezuela’s sole temple, in Caracas, mean all 21 temples on the continent of South America have reopened.

Nearly seven months after the first of its temples began Phase 1 operations on May 11, the Church has reopened 158 of its available 160 dedicated temples. The Church has 168 dedicated temples, but eight are closed for major renovations.

Of all currently reopened temples, 126 are in Phase 2, including 11 “paused” temples. July 27 marked the first 12 temples moving from Phase 1 to Phase 2.

With COVID-19 cases on the rise across the United States and many parts across the globe and a sustaining of pandemic precautions and restrictions, a move to the start of Phase 3 operations — temples expanding to provide proxy ordinances for ancestors in a restricted manner — may still be a ways off.

The two temples yet to reopen are the Kyiv Ukraine and Panama City Panama temples.

Of the 32 temples that have reopened but remain in Phase 1, six are in the United States — two each in California and New York state and one each in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. The two California temples and the one Pennsylvania temple are paused.

The other 26 temples in Phase 1 outside the U.S. are seven in Mexico, five in Canada, three in Peru, two in Colombia, and one each in Honduras, Costa Rica, Italy, Portugal, Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay and Venezuela.

A closer look at the status of each of the Church’s 168 dedicated temples — in an area-by-area listing — can be found below.

Since early May, the Church has announced weekly which temples would be moving to Phase 1 or Phase 2 status the following week.

Following the March 25 closing of all temples, the Church reopened its first 17 temples in Phase 1 on May 11.  As of Dec. 7, Phase 1 reopenings will have occurred with temples in 42 nations and 34 states in the United States.

As of the same Dec. 7 date, Phase 2 reopenings will have occurred with temples in 34 nations across six continents and in 32 states.

Temple reopenings to date, by Church areas, include:

  • All 84 temples possible in the six North America and Utah areas have reopened, not counting the five temples undergoing lengthy renovations. Of the 84 reopened temples, 73 are currently in Phase 2, including four “paused” temples. The other 11 are in Phase 1, including three additional “paused” temples.
  • 20 of the 21 temples in the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico areas have reopened, with one closed. Eleven temples currently are in Phase 2, with two paused; the other nine reopened temples are in Phase 1.
  • 13 of the 14 temples in the two Europe areas have reopened, with one closed. Eleven of the 13 reopened temples are in Phase 2, with two paused; the other two are in Phase 1.
  • All 21 of the temples in the Brazil and two South America areas have reopened. Twelve are in Phase 2; the other nine are in Phase 1.
  • Nine of the 10 temples in the Pacific Area have reopened, with one closed for renovations. Eight of the reopened temples are in Phase 2, including one that is paused; the other one in Phase 1.
  • All five of the temples in the three Africa areas are reopened have reopened. All five are in Phase 2.
  • Four of the six temples in the two Asia areas have reopened, with two closed for renovation. All of the four reopened temples are in Phase 2.
  • Both of the two temples in the Philippines Area have reopened, with both in Phase 2.

Phase 2 reopenings were first announced for July 27. When the first 10 temples in Utah were announced for Phase 2 on Aug. 17, the announcement on the Church’s Newsroom site included the statement: “Temples in Utah are anticipated to be very busy, so priority will be given first to living persons who are to be sealed, next to missionaries currently serving in the field, and then to missionaries who are preparing to depart, based on their departure date.”

Each reopening considers local circumstances and governmental restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Newsroom release.

Precautions for temple workers and patrons at temples operating in Phase 1 and Phase 2 include wearing masks at all times, limiting the number of patrons in the temple at a time, operating with minimal staff in the temple, sanitizing after each temple ceremony, maintaining careful social distancing and seating arrangements and — for Phase 2 — performing temperature checks at the entrance.

Phase 2 designates a temple as open for all living ordinances only, scheduled by appointment only. Temple workers will perform all temple ordinances for living individuals, with no proxy temple work done for deceased individuals. Also, Phase 2 still keeps patron housing, clothing and cafeteria operations closed.

The first temples to close because of coronavirus concerns in late February were in Asia — the Taipei Taiwan, Seoul Korea, Fukuoka Japan and Sapporo Japan temples. When the Church determined to close all operating temples on March 25 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, operations at 111 temples of its 168 temples had ceased.

Six weeks later, 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.
