All public areas of the Church-owned buildings in and around Temple Square are closed. The closures will remain in effect until further notice.
Conference Weekend April 2021
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said Thursday it will hold its twice-yearly signature conference in April without in-person audience as it did in October because of lingering concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
The conferences usually bring some 100,000 people to the church conference center in Salt Lake City to attend five sessions over two days. Instead, church leaders will be inside a small auditorium with only a few other people as the speeches are broadcast live online around the world.
Mask Up Utah:
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, our governor along with local officials and medical professionals are urging all Utahns and State-Wide Guests to wear masks when out and about. That includes when inside retail stores such as markets, clothing shops, restaurants and bars. ( Although once customers are seated at an eatery they can remove their mask to enjoy food and drink. ) This could change, we will post updated info as it's reported.

An Overview of Salt Lake
Salt Lake combines the amenities of a large metro area with the opportunity to take advantage of year round outdoor recreation within minutes in every direction. An attractive, safe, and growing city, Salt Lake offers unequaled views, a thriving economy, exciting nightlife, remarkable history, the warm hospitality of a small western town, and *The Greatest Snow on Earth, TM*. Salt Lake is an incredible destination for patrons of the performing arts with: Ballet West, Utah Opera Company, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, Repertory Dance Theatre, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, The Utah Symphony, Numerous theater groups and over twenty art galleries are within minutes of downtown hotels.
Salt Lake is located in northern Utah and sits in a large valley between two mountain ranges, the Wasatch on the east side and the Oquirrhs to the west. Getting to Salt Lake has never been easier. All of the major airlines fly into Salt Lake, so you can get here in no time. Half of the U. S. population is located within a two and a half hour flight from Salt Lake and two major interstate highways, I-15 and I-80 intersect in Salt Lake City.
Since hosting the 2002 Olympic Games, Salt Lake has shined and continues to showcase our city's profile as a destination to visit. When winter hits, the snow falls on the slopes of our four world-class ski resorts, which are Alta, Brighton, Snowbird, and Solitude. Up in Park City, three world-class ski resorts and the Utah Olympic Park are less than a 40 minute drive from downtown Salt Lake. With the influx of relocatees, and owners of second homes, Park City has transformed itself into a vibrant year-round city. During spring, summer and fall, our canyons are filled with hikers, rock climbers, mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Salt Lake City is the Utah state capital and seat of Salt Lake County. Located in the north central part of the state, it is 24 km (15 miles) east of the Great Salt Lake, and is situated along the western slope of the Wasatch Mountain Range. The Salt Lake Valley was once part of ancient Lake Bonneville. Now, only a few rivers pass through our city.
Salt Lake City is the worldwide headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Salt Lake is Utah's largest city in a large region of the interior West and serves as the industrial, financial, and commercial center of Utah.
Salt Lake City has a dry climate, with only 411 mm (16.2 in) of precipitation per year. However, the Wasatch Mountain Range is well watered, and the runoff is used to water the valley. The average July daytime-nighttime temperature range in the city is 33 to 18 C (92 to 64 F), and the average January range is 2 to -7 C (36 to 19 F).
Downtown Salt Lake City
Is noted for its wide streets and spacious blocks, a legacy of the Mormon settlers who laid out the city in 1847. The city was built on a grid system based on the four streets bordering Temple Square, the focus of the downtown area. Inside Temple Square is the Mormon Temple, which took 40 years to build - from 1853 to 1893. Other important sites to visit are the Mormon Tabernacle, the Utah State Capitol Building, the Salt Lake City and County Building, the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Madeleine, the University of Utah, and the Vivant Smart Home Area where our Utah Jazz play their home games. Trax light rail was completed in 2001 and provides quick access from one area of the valley to the next although a vehicle is still the choice of transportation means.
