As COVID-19 surges, LDS First Presidency asks for masks in temples, urges vaccination
Deseret News | Posted - Sept. 22, 2021
Masks will be required in temples because of the resurgence of COVID-19, according to a letter released Wednesday morning by the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
President Russell M. Nelson and his counselors again urged vaccinations in the letter.
They said previous church leaders made similar calls about smallpox in 1900 and polio in 1957.
In 1900, church President Lorenzo Snow and his first counselor, President George Q. Cannon, recommended that members seek out the smallpox vaccination.
In 1957, the First Presidency supported vaccination against polio and endorsed a fundraising drive for the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.
