Temple reopening status tracker — through Jan. 25

After completely closing all of its temples worldwide in late March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continues to reopen its temples in a careful and cautious four-phase plan.

Below is a closer look — in an area-by-area listing — at the current status of each of the Church’s 168 dedicated temples as of Monday, Jan. 25, 2021. Click on the area name below to jump to a listing of the temples and their current status in that specific area.

More information on the latest announcements on temple reopenings can be found at TheChurchNews.com.

With the announced changes, the Church will have — as of Jan. 25 — the following breakdown of its 168 dedicated temples:

  • 4 operating in Phase 3
  • 119 operating in Phase 2
  • 17 operating in Phase 1
  • 19 “paused”
  • 1 still closed
  • 8 closed for major renovations

The First Presidency announced on Dec. 7 that four temples — the Apia Samoa, Brisbane Australia, Nuku’alofa Tonga and Taipei Taiwan temples — could move as early as Dec. 21, 2020, to Phase 3, which allows for proxy ordinance work for the dead. The Taipei temple was the first to begin Phase 3 operations, on that Dec. 21 date.

Phase 1 allows for limited living husband-and-wife sealings by appointment, while Phase 2 allows for those sealing as well as all other living ordinances, also by appointment. Phase 3 includes everything from the first two phases and the performance of temple ordinances for deceased individuals.
