What Will Happen to Missionaries Currently in the MTC? Reassignments and Self-Isolation Explained

by | Mar. 23, 2020

On Friday, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Missionary Training Centers worldwide would stop receiving new missionaries. But what does that mean for missionaries currently in the MTC? 

Deseret News reports that all missionaries in 10 MTCs around the globe will either leave to travel to their mission or return home to self-isolate this week or soon after. If the missionaries have a call to serve in a foreign country, they will return home, self-isolate, and be reassigned to a new, domestic mission. 

“All impacted missionaries and their families are receiving information regarding travel dates and other logistics, including details of their new assignments if they were originally planning to serve outside their home country,” Church Spokesperson Daniel Woodruff told Deseret News.
