  • 07 Apr 2019 : New Temple Announced for Okinawa Island!

Japan School/Church Closure: 27-Feb-2020

Because of the advancing Covid-19 Epidemic, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday asked all elementary, junior high and high schools nationwide to close from Monday through the students’ spring break, which typically ends in early April. Later Thursday, the health and welfare ministry said Abe’s request does not apply to day care centers for children and after-school facilities for elementary school students.[1]

Abe’s surprise announcement came as the number of confirmed COVID-19 virus patients kept surging, exceeding 200 across Japan as of Thursday evening, excluding the more than 700 infected patients related to the virus-hit Diamond Princess cruise ship.

Also thursday social media circulated copies of a Church email announcing a similar closure of all LDS Church buildings in Japan. Later on Thursday this closure was confirmed by the Church.[2]

"Effective immediately and until further notice, all church buildings in Japan will be closed. ALthough members will not gather together for SUnday meetings, including sacrament meeting, all are encouraged to meet in their homes as families. Where possible wards and branches may share spiritually uplifting messages and conduct church business via online media."

Other tidbits:

  • Sapporo Japan Temple and Fukuoka Japan Temples will be closed.
  • All church office buildings/family history centers will be closed.
  • Stake/District conferences have been canceled
  • Missionaries must stay isolated form the public, but can proselyte online.
