The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has come out with a letter addressing how the October General Conference will be viewed. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary for the leaders to come out with plans on how the conference will be viewed worldwide.
In the letter, the church is making similar plans to broadcast the conference as it was done in the April 2020 conference.
This is being done to safeguard the lives of members in this time of Coronavirus pandemic and to be good citizens. Below is the letter;
|Dear Brothers and Sisters:|
|While some areas of the world continue to experience the effects of a serious pandemic, other areas do not. As a worldwide organization, we have an obligation to be good citizens and to act with caution as it relates to such a unique setting as general conference, which traditionally brings thousands of visitors to Salt Lake City from around the globe.|
|Because of our concern for the health and safety of others, we have decided that the October 2020 general conference will follow the same pattern as the conference held in April of this year. The general sessions will be broadcast as usual. However, the general sessions will not be open to the public.|
|Additional details about general conference, scheduled for October 3 and 4, 2020, will be shared as they are finalized.|
|We pray that the Lord’s choicest blessings will attend you.|
|The First Presidency|
