General Information About MRSA
(methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus)

  • In the community (where you live, work, shop, and go to school), MRSA most often causes skin infections.
  • Students with skin infections may need to be referred to a licensed health care provider for diagnosis and treatment. 
  • Use standard precautions (e.g., hand hygiene before and after contact, wearing gloves) when caring for broken skin (open wounds) or potential infections.
  • Use barriers such as gowns, masks, and eye protection if splashing or other contact with potentially infected body fluids is anticipated.
