MRSA Bacterial Infections

Recent reports of the spread of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA ) skin infections in schools have raised questions and concerns about the infection and the prevention of the spread of associated MRSA infections. Careful hand washing is the single most effective way to control the spread of MRSA. Practicing good personal hygiene, including showering after physical activity, not sharing personal items such as towels, covering skin trauma, and wiping down equipment/mats with commercial disinfectants is recommended. Members of the campus community are asked to help prevent the spread of MRSA and other communicable diseases by practicing good personal hygiene at home, school and work.

Additional information about MRSA can be found by using the following links:
