(Newser) – Hundreds of North Dakota Catholics might have been exposed to hepatitis A—by a bishop. The Department of Health is warning people at five North Dakota Catholic churches they might have been exposed to the virus during communion over the last few weeks. Officials have determined Bishop John Folda returned from Rome with the liver infection. The good news is that the risk is relatively low.
