Elder Gerrit W. Gong and his wife had tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 today. The Church released the following statement:
As shared in General Conference this weekend, Elder Gerrit W. Gong was recently exposed to COVID-19 and did not participate in conference in person. He and Sister Gong have now tested positive for the virus. Their condition is mild, but they are being cautious and their health is being carefully monitored by doctors. The Church will follow all appropriate health protocols for contact tracing and will continue to follow health guidelines for this virus to protect Church leaders, including self-isolation, as appropriate. We continue to encourage all Church members to take steps to protect themselves and one another during this global pandemic.
Elder and Sister Gong were unable to attend the General Conference last week. His talk was instead recorded before the event. All members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and First Presidency were present except for him.
