Ebola Virus

The Ebola virus outbreak in Africa is on the watch list in the United States. While the possibility of infected persons entering the U.S. remains low, federal, state and local health departments and healthcare professionals and hospitals across the country are informed about Ebola and what to do if there is a suspected case. Healthcare and public health are on alert for any potential cases in the United States brought in by travel.

For more information about Ebola virus and the preparations to protect against Ebola, go to the CDC Ebola webpage.

Skin and Staph Infections

Skin and Staph Infections Staphylococcus aureus (staph) are bacteria that many healthy people carry on their skin or in their nose. Staph can sometimes cause serious infections like pneumonia, blood, or joint infections, and deep skin infections.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a type of staph that is not killed by penicillin and similar antibiotics. It causes skin infections especially among school children. Students, faculty and staff at schools should be sensitive to the possibility of disease transmission.

The California Department of Public Health has released information to address the concerns of the educational community in California about MRSA.
