Missionary Training Center in Provo to require masks again
PROVO, Utah — The Missionary Training Center in Provo is adding certain COVID-19 safety measures, including the requirement of masks and increased testing.
Earlier this week, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints announced that many of their missionaries tested positive for COVID-19. The Church said 91 of the 588 missionaries, or 15%, had a confirmed case of COVID-19.
The Missionary Training Center is reinstituting a mask mandate for their missionaries, a measure that had previously been terminated.
Additionally, the MTC will now require proof of a negative test before individuals go on their missions. Any newly arriving missionaries will also be required to have a negative test.
The Provo MTC will continue to operate at reduced capacity to allow for distancing.
Bonneville International Corporation, the company that owns KSL NewsRadio, is a subsidiary of Deseret Management Corporation, which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
