Case Of Staph Infection At Powell County School

School officials in Powell County are dealing with a confirmed case of staph infection.

Officials say an employee at Stanton Elementary School has been diagnosed with MRSA. We're told that employee did not contract the infection at the school.

Letters went home to parents earlier this week to inform them about this incident.

School officials say routine cleaning done at the school is enough to contain the spread of the infection.

    That is correct, Schools should be closed down because of staph. The Cleaning routines will handle the staph. As long as school officials, employees, and students keep good hygiene. Then no one should get staph. The key to staph is to keep good hygiene. My point is Schools shouldn't be shut down. It is the School officials jobs to keep the schools up and running, and clean and tidy. The only reason school shut down in my case is because they do not want to lose money where kids are scared to go to school because of the staph. -Zackary Ritchie
