FITCHBURG (CBS) -- The Fitchburg Health Department announced Sunday that nearly 150 coronavirus cases have been connected to church services and programs at Crossroads Church on or around Oct. 18.

Contract tracers have also identified more than 40 COVID-19 cases related to ice and deck hockey, the health department said.
