SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has asked all its members in Utah to wear face coverings when in public, a request that comes as confirmed infections in the state increase.

The Deseret News reports that the Utah Area Presidency sent out the request in an email on Friday evening. The area presidency operates under the authority of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

“Now we ask all Latter-day Saints in the Utah Area to be good citizens by wearing face coverings when in public,” the email said. “Doing so will help promote the health and general welfare of all.

About 62% of Utah's 3.1 million residents are members of the church.

5. Yes!

A lot of the welfare cattle ranching Mormons in the White Mountains still think it's a hoax.

8. I live in the north valley but I know people who live up there.

Heber and Overgaard have been pretty much spared so far but if it gets started it could go through those communities like wildfire because virtually nobody up there wears a mask. It's all fun and games until somebody gets COVID.
