Attention Latter-day Saints: How has COVID-19 impacted your General Conference traditions?

Fill out our survey.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) The sun rises on an empty plaza outside the Conference Center for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City as the global pandemic continues to affect daily life with the start of the 191st Annual General Conference remaining all-virtual on Saturday, April 3, 2021.

COVID-19 didn’t disrupt just big things like work, school and life events. It also upended the traditions of many families and communities.

Some of those traditions were centered around The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ twice-yearly General Conferences, which became all-virtual gatherings during the pandemic.

Common conference traditions include attending sessions at the Conference Center in downtown Salt Lake City, special meals, certain activities, shopping excursions or assembling with family or friends to hear leaders speak.

COVID-19 may have forced some families to modify or totally replace their usual traditions.

As the Utah-based faith prepares to hold its fall conference next month, The Salt Lake Tribune wants to know if you’ve adjusted your conference traditions due to the coronavirus. Will you continue practicing your new traditions after the pandemic is over? Or will you go back to your old ones? Fill out the survey below.

Answers may be used in an upcoming story about General Conference traditions during COVID-19. The Tribune will contact you before using your answers.
