have expiration date resumed?
On my Temple Reservation List, it shows updated expiration dates different from what they were before. Have you checked yours? Now that my temple is reopened even at limited appointments, I have started with my oldest cards first.0
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a member of the Church ... ]
Just my thoughts.
Short Answer: 'No', I DO NOT believe so, I have NOT 'seen' any advice (ie. Media) from the Church on such.
"COVID-19", is STILL a Pandemic, ALL around the World.
Not ALL "Temples" are OPEN.
Many "Temples", that are OPEN, are operating under "Restrictions".
Such "Restrictions", often LIMIT the number of Patrons; and, allow attendance by "Appointment" ONLY.
We are NOT back to NORMAL ▬ whatever that NORMAL, for this post-"COVID-19" World, is going to be like.
So, I would venture to suggest that "Expiration" 'Dates' for "Temple" Work has not yet resumed.
IF, I am wrong; THEN, I stand corrected; and, I humbly apologise.
We will be advised, by the Church, through the Church 'Media', when such has resumed.
Hopefully, we will ALSO be advised, directly, through our, Local, Priesthood Leaders, when such has resumed.
I hope this helps.
ps: Although our local "Temple" was one of the early ones to REOPEN; and, was operating under some "Restrictions", now, currently; as of, a few Weeks ago, it was "Closed". like ALL Church activities, DUE to a "City" wide "Lockdown", because of an 'outbreak', that may 'drag on' for some time yet.
It's been over year since this post, and I am asking why this hasn't happened yet? I have family members who were reserved in 2019 and with NOTHING done and the reservations haven't expired yet. I think FamilySearch should consider that this was "normal" before COVID, and it is still the "normal" after COVID and roll back some expiration dates returning them to what they were before the shutdown. Living people should not hoard ordinance reservations for the dead when they can't or wont' do them. They should be automatically dumped into the temple system so that others can do them.0
Hello @Stephanie Spencer Booth
Apparently, some of the Temples have not re-opened yet.
So I expect that is the reason why expiration dates haven't been re-instated.
This is the relevant knowledge article -
https://www.familysearch.org/en/help/helpcenter/article/what-happens-to-my-ordinance-reservation-during-the-covid-19-outbreak which includes "Reservations for temple ordinances do not expire until all temples have resumed pre-pandemic operations."
This note is still at the top of the "My Reservations" page:
"Expirations will continue to be suspended until all temples have fully reopened."0
Kyiv, Ukraine temple opened on Friday, so does that mean all the temples have reopened? If the Ukrainians can attend the temple, then I think it is safe to say that most people who have ordinance reservations can now attend the temple, they just aren't.
Roll back the expiration dates NOW, please!
