Another Case of Staph Infection in Florida

GREENACRES, Fla. (AP) _ Officials say a case of the MRSA staph infection was found at a Palm Beach County school.

The principal at Heritage Elementary School in Greenacres sent out letters to parents on Thursday reporting the school had three cases, but only one was found Friday when the Health Department investigated.

A health department spokesman says the case is being treated, and there is no longer any threat at the school.

MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
