LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints is canceling an upcoming leadership gathering and curtailing some of its missionary work because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The leadership sessions, during the general conference, scheduled in April draw people from all over the world. Those sessions will be pushed back to October “out of an abundance of caution,” according to the LDS website.
Also, some missionaries who were supposed to go to Asia are being reassigned.
The church is also canceling worship services in some of the hardest hit areas.
