Kevin Miller looks at how the Mormon Church is handling the Coronavirus. For only the second time in history, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has called off all services and church gatherings around the world in hopes of curbing the spread of the coronavirus. In a letter sent to more than 16 million church members on Thursday, Mormon leaders say "stake conferences, leadership conferences, worship services and other large gatherings" have been "temporarily suspended worldwide until further notice." It goes on to advise church leaders to conduct services "via technology, where possible." The only other time Mormon leaders have imposed a worldwide shutdown was in 1957, when a flu epidemic swept the globe. Should all religions follow the Mormon church's lead?
