Staph Infection Prevention
The Texas Department of State Health Services has released guidelines to help prevent the spread of staphylococcal infections. The guidelines, "Prevention and Containment of Staphylococcal Infections in Communities" includes checklists for athletic departments, schools, child care settings, dormitories, group homes, gyms and spas, homes, salons, workplaces and youth camps. Staphylococcus Aureus, often referred to as "staph", are bacteria that can cause skin infections that are often initially mistaken for insect or spider bites. Staph bacteria are spread through person-to-person contact or contact with contaminated surfaces.
