Temple reopening status tracker — through April 19

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 and projected through Monday, April 19, 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 April 19 — the following breakdown of its 168 dedicated temples:

  • 26 operating in Phase 3
  • 30 operating in Phase 2-B
  • 87 operating in Phase 2
  • 6 operating in Phase 1
  • 10 “paused” — 9 in Phase 2, 1 in Phase 1
  • 1 still closed
  • 8 closed for major renovations

An additional 22 temples are scheduled to move from Phase 2 to Phase 2-B. The recently added phase designation expands the Phase 2 allowance for all living ordinance with proxy baptisms, with the temple baptistry is open for small groups — particularly for members with a limited-use recommend.

Also, the districts for three temples closed for major renovations — the Salt Lake, St. George Utah and Mesa Arizona temples — have been given Phase 2-B status. While the temples are not opening, the status allows members residing in the respective temple districts to use the online scheduling system for the nearest operating temple.

Members can use the online scheduling system to schedule temple appointments — the system is activated the Monday afternoon one week prior to the scheduled starting date.

Phase 2-B offers all living ordinances and proxy baptisms, by appointment. Phase 3 includes everything from the first two phases and the performance of temple ordinances for deceased individuals.
