The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says it will hold its twice-yearly signature conference in October without in-person audience as it did in April because of lingering concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. The faith's top leaders said in a news release Thursday that they feel an obligation to act with caution with a conference that normally brings some 100,000 people to the church conference center in Salt Lake City to attend five sessions over two days. Instead, church leaders will be inside a small auditorium with only a few other people as the speeches are broadcast live online around the world.
