(Associated Press) The bishop of the Fargo Catholic Diocese in North Dakota has exposed potentially hundreds of church members in Fargo, Grand Forks and Jamestown to the hepatitis A virus in late September and early October.

The state Health Department has issued an advisory of exposure for anyone who attended five churches and took communion. State Immunization Program Manager Molly Howell says the risk is low, but officials feel it’s important to alert people to the possible exposure.
