COVID outbreak reported at Mormon missionary training center


PROVO, Utah (AP) — An outbreak of COVID-19 has been reported at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-ay Saints’ main training center for missionaries in Provo, Utah. The Provo Missionary Training Center requires all missionaries to be fully vaccinated and also conducts COVID-19 testing, several missionaries tested positive this week. Church spokesperson Sam Penrod said Thursday that all 588 missionaries were tested, and 91 tested positive. Of those who tested positive, few reported having any symptoms. The training center has been operating at reduced capacity and Penrod says there are ample spaces to separate those who have tested negative from those who have tested positive. The center is now requiring face coverings be worn indoors.
