MRSA is highly contagious to family members or anyone else that is around the person who has MRSA.

If someone in your house has MRSA then it's highly likely that the other family members or at least one family member in the same household will get MRSA as well.

MRSA is a highly contagious disease that can easily spread through skin contact.

If someone has MRSA and you need to touch the person you should wear gloves when touching the infected person and always wash your hands with hot water and antibacterial soap often.

Use disinfectant on things that the person with MRSA touched and wash the bedding and their clothes often as well.
