State Representatives Want to Track Cases of MRSA

Posted: Updated:

State Representative Tom Campbell of Roy is urging Governor Christione Gregoire to use her emergency executive powers to force health officials to begin tracking cases of an increasingly common bacterial skin infection that's resistant to antibiotics.

Right now, health departments are not currently required to report cases of MRSA.

 A Federal Way man recently died of MRSA, and several non-fatal cases have been reported in schools across the state.
