There have been no new cases of MRSA reported in Harrison County schools, according to DeeGee Fischer, assistant superintendent.

Fischer said the one Harrison County High School student was cleared to return to classes on Monday.

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is a type of staph bacteria that is resistant to the antibiotic methicillin.

Fischer said the one student was placed on homebound and custodial staff increased their cleaning efforts.
