On-Site Training Update

The Provo MTC is now able to train both vaccinated and unvaccinated missionaries on-site. See more details on COVID protocol changes below. These details are being emailed to missionaries, their stake presidents, and approved family contacts.

Other MTCs will be adjusting their on-site training options as situations allow. For the latest on who can train on-site, see the MTC Training Statuses list.

Most MTCs now conduct at least the first one to two weeks of training online. Learn more about online training below.

Changes to COVID-19 Protocols at the Provo MTC

The Missionary Department has recently approved adjustments to COVID protocols related to MTC training. The following changes are being applied at the Provo MTC immediately and will be made at other MTCs as COVID circumstances and local government restrictions allow.


    • While we continue to encourage COVID-19 vaccination, both vaccinated and unvaccinated missionaries are now able to attend on-site training at the Provo MTC.

    • All missionaries beginning the at-home portion of training on February 21st or later should plan to complete their training on-site after their at-home experience.


    • A COVID test is no longer required prior to arriving at the MTC unless you have received testing instructions from Church Travel related to flying to the MTC.

    • If you have cold or flu-like symptoms within a few days prior to traveling to the MTC, please plan to receive a PCR COVID-19 test before traveling. If the test is positive, call 801-422-2602 for instructions. If the test is negative and you feel healthy enough to travel, come to the MTC as scheduled.


    • Missionaries now determine for themselves whether to use a facemask in all settings at the Provo MTC based on their own individual circumstances. We encourage all to extend love and respect to others and their decisions.

    • Masks continue to be required in the temple and may be required in your assigned mission. Please bring a sufficient supply of masks for use in the temple and as required in your mission.

These changes apply to Provo MTC training only. Masks, testing, and vaccination requirements may still apply to travel or to activities in your assigned mission.
