Apostle Jeffrey R. Holland has been released from the hospital after undergoing diagnostic tests for an unknown illness, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Friday.

After a brief hospitalization “for observation,” the 79-year-old leader “is returning to normal activities,” church spokesman Eric Hawkins said in a news release. “He and his family appreciate the prayers and concern on his behalf.”

Hawkins previously said Holland did not have COVID-19. No other information was released about his health.
