    MRSA has been around hospitals for years. All of a sudden because it shows up in a student, the scare is on. Closing schools and disinfecting them do not work! Parents should teach their children proper hygiene such as HAND WASHING! This is the primary defense against this bacteria...

    It is not surprising that Lafayette High School has three cases of MRSA, their athletic facilities are a breeding ground for staph. The condition of the stadium and facilities are disgraceful.

    I know of a company that has several relatively inexpensive, safe products that have been independently proven to kill the pathogen that causes MRSA in the laundry, through the air and on surfaces. If anyone is interested they can email me. theresanoack@yahoo.com
