US : MRSA strikes Kenston Community Education Center

Via The News Herald :

" More than six cases of the MRSA staph infection were reported within the Kenston Community Education football team this week.

Officials at the sports facility that serves Bainbridge and Auburn townships found out about the first case on Wednesday.

The student played on a community football team comprised of fifth and sixth-graders.

“We immediately sprayed the school’s turf with disinfectant.” Kenston Community Education Director Jennifer Holzheimer said. “We did not allow the kids to return until the locker room and equipment was done.”

She said letters were sent to parents with an information sheet on the infection.

Geauga County Health Board, Kenston School Board and the fall coaches were also notified about the cases."
