Church Emphasizes Travel Guidelines for Missionaries in New Statement

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

With Latter-day Saint missionaries continuing to travel around the world as they are reassigned or are coming home, Church officials have released a new statement emphasizing strict adherence to travel guidelines. The following statement is from Church spokesman Daniel Woodruff.

As we have recently announced, missionaries throughout the world are departing for their new assignments and will continue to do so during the next several months. Others are returning home at the end of their service. When they depart or return home — regardless of location — we ask missionaries and their families to strictly follow established guidelines to prevent the spread of illness while at the airport or on an airplane. Families should limit the number of people picking up, dropping off, or accompanying a missionary based on local airport regulations. Whenever missionaries are inside the airport or an airplane, they should wear a mask, avoid congregating in groups, not shake hands or hug, and obey all social distancing measures. Above all, missionaries and their families should promptly follow all instructions from airport officials or volunteers. We appreciate the cooperation of missionaries and their families as we all work to follow these important safety guidelines.

Missionary reassignments began at the end of April, with missionaries traveling to new areas within their home countries to serve. Others are completing their missions and traveling home.
