Like the Church’s other 9 missionary training centers, the flagship Provo MTC is closed currently to new missionaries due to COVID-19 pandemic. However, it remains open for limited administrative operations and to provide online training for new missionaries in their homes.
“We are grateful that the shooting this morning at the Provo Missionary Training Center did not result in physical injury,” Church spokesman Eric Hawkins told Church News. “The investigation of this incident is being handled by the Provo City Police Department, and questions related to details, motive or any other information should be directed to them.”
According to Church News, the Provo MTC is closed currently to new missionaries but it remains open for limited administrative operations. Since March 16, no new missionaries have reported to the missionary training center in Provo, as directed by a letter from the First Presidency.
