The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has updated the list of temples reopening all over the world. 19 temples have been added to phase 2 reopening taking the total number to 48 temples. With phase 1, 8 temples have been added to the list. The total number of reopening temples are 138 for phase 1.

As stated on church website, the focus for phase 1 and phase 2 are on;

Phase 1

Perform living sealings only for previously endowed members under strict guidelines and safety precautions

Phase 2

  • Perform all temple ordinances for living individuals, with priority given for those who will be sealed. The next priority will be endowments for in-field missionaries (who left home prior to receiving their endowment), then followed by those departing for missionary service in the near future. These priorities will be addressed according to the capacity and scheduling ability of each temple.
  • Maintain closure of patron housing, clothing, and cafeteria operations
