Two hospitalized for MRSA at Steinert

At least two students from a Hamilton high school have been hospitalized overnight with MRSA infections over the past several weeks.
Superintendent James Parla said the two hospitalized students were among six confirmed cases of the infection at Steinert High School. He said one had been hospitalized earlier in the year and as of early Monday afternoon, another was still in the hospital.
He said there were several other cases of non-MRSA staph infections at the school, which are less serious. He said the district cleaned the school’s locker rooms this weekend and conferred with the local department of health about how to handle the issue.
“We cleaned inside the locker rooms from top to bottom,” he said. “We’ll continue doing that; we’re not going to stop.”
