Lehigh Valley churches make changes to avoid flu

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - February 24, 2014

Catholic leaders in the Lehigh Valley have made temporary changes to their church services.

The bishop instructed parishes to limit physical contact as much as possible. That means refraining from shaking hands during the sign of peace, and sharing a wine chalice during communion.

So far, the Lehigh Valley has reported six flu-related deaths this year.
