Due to the outbreak of the Ebola virus, all missionaries serving in of Sierra Leone and Liberia will be transferred out of these countries and re-assigned to other missions.
"Ensuring the health and safety of our missionaries is our top priority," the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints said in a statement released Friday.
The Church says in recent weeks measures have been taken to reduce risk to missionaries, including asking them to remain in their apartments.
There have been no reports of illness among the missionaries.
