MRSA & Schools

People can carry MRSA and not have any symptoms. These “carriers” can also transmit the bacteria to other people.  School is in session this week and we all need to be vigilant in our efforts.
MRSA can be easily spread through skin-to-skin contact and by touching contaminated items. Therefore, it is crucial to take measures to help reduce the spread of MRSA using these practical steps.
• Scrub up – Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 15 seconds – the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice – or use an alcohol-based hand rub sanitizer.
• Wipe it down – Use a hospital-grade disinfectant with a MRSA kill-claim to disinfect hard surfaces. Make sure to use clean cloths to avoid spreading MRSA from one surface to another.
• Cover your cuts – Keep any nicks or wounds covered with a clean, dry bandage until healed.
• Keep to yourself – Do not share personal items, like towels or razors, that encounter bare skin.
