SALT LAKE CITY (KLAS) — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has suspended gatherings worldwide “until further notice” due to the coronavirus. These gatherings include conferences, public worship services and branch, ward and stake activities.

The first Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the church sent a letter to its following, saying, “We have considered the counsel of local Church leaders, government officials and medical professionals and have sought the Lord’s guidance in these matters.”

The church has directed leadership to conduct any essential meetings through technology. They also said bishops should consult with stake presidents to determine how sacrament can be distributed at least once a month.
