Is it possible to get sick from drinking from the Eucharistic cup?

Question:

Is it possible to get sick from drinking from the Eucharistic cup?<br />

Answer:

Yes. The precious blood does not inoculate a cup against germs that cause illness.

Reasonable care should be taken to clean the cup between communicants. If there is an epidemic illness, it may be prudent to distribute only the host.
