There is national and local concern about MRSA infections. Prevention is literally in the hands of each one of us.

  • Wash your hands often.
  • Take care of yourself: Eat right, exercise, quit smoking and avoid stress.
  • Take good care of your skin.
  • Keep skin infections covered to avoid spreading MRSA to others.
  • If you develop a skin infection, please come to the Student Health Center for evaluation and treatment.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has more information here. .
