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.
