Livonia Stevenson Student Diagnosed With MRSA

LIVONIA (WWJ) – Officials from Stevenson High School in Livonia alerted parents Monday that a student had been diagnosed with MRSA.

The student, who has not been identified, was not in school on Monday.

The student has been diagnosed with MRSA (ethicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus), an infection caused by a strain of staph bacteria that’s become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections.

School officials say they are following District and Wayne County protocol for this case, and sanitization is under way. The student will not be returning to school until cleared by a physician.
