believe parents that have students at
Northside should panic but they should
be aware and concerned.

Skin infections like these pictures
are the most common form of the
infection. Symptoms can include any
kind of skin redness, boils or
absesses. It generally starts out as a
small red bump that resemble pimples.

JOY SUTTON:

ACCORDING TO HEALTH EXPERTS IN MOST
CASES THE INFECTIONS ARE MILD AND CAN
BE TREATED WITH ANTIBIOTICS...BUT IF
LEFT UNTREATED IT CAN TURN MORE SERIOUS
EVEN LIFE THREATENING. MRSA CAN INFECT
THE BONES, LUNGS, HEART, AND THE BLOOD

(END SOT)




To prevent the spread of this
staph infection it's important to wash
hands frequently, avoid sharing
personal items such as towels or
clothing because the bacteria are
spread through direct physical contact
with a person or a contaminated object,
cover any open wounds or cuts because
that's where the infection can enter
the body,and report any suspicious
sores to your doctor.

They still don't know how Jon
contracted it.
