AN ACT to amend the education law and the public health law, in relation
  to Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus protection  and  educa-
  tion

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The education law is amended by adding a new section 921 to
read as follows:
  S 921. MRSA AND OTHER INFECTIOUS SKIN DISEASE  PROTECTION  AND  EDUCA-
TION.  1. LEGISLATIVE INTENT.  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS AND DETERMINES THAT
METHICILLIN-RESISTANT  STAPHYLOCOCCUS  AUREUS  (MRSA)  IS A VERY SERIOUS
HEALTH CONCERN FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK. MRSA IS A BACTE-
RIA THAT CAN LEAD TO THE OUTBREAK OF  SERIOUS  INFECTIONS.  DUE  TO  ITS
COMMON RESISTANCE TO MANY MODERN ANTIBIOTICS, IT IS VERY OFTEN DIFFICULT
TO  TREAT,  AND CAN RESULT IN EXTENDED HOSPITALIZATION, SERIOUS ILLNESS,
AND EVEN DEATH.
  THE LEGISLATURE FURTHER FINDS AND DETERMINES THAT AS A SERIOUS  HEALTH
RISK, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE STATE OF NEW YORK TO PROMOTE EDUCATION AND
AWARENESS  ON  HOW  TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF SUCH INFECTIOUS DISEASES AS
MRSA, DEVELOP PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES TO  HELP  AVOID  TRANSMISSION  OF
MRSA,  AND  THEREBY PROTECT THE PUBLIC HEALTH OF THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE
OF NEW YORK. SUCH EDUCATION, PROTOCOLS  AND  PROCEDURES  ARE  ESPECIALLY
IMPORTANT  WHERE THE RISKS OF TRANSMISSION ARE SIGNIFICANT, INCLUDING IN
OUR PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS,  WHERE  SUCH  EDUCATION,  PROTOCOLS  AND
METHODS CAN BE DEPLOYED TO LESSEN THE CHANCE AND RISK OF INFECTION.
  THE  LEGISLATURE  ADDITIONALLY  FINDS  AND DETERMINES THAT ONE AREA IN
WHICH SUCH EDUCATION, PROTOCOLS AND METHODS COULD BE  ESPECIALLY  USEFUL
IS  WITH  RESPECT  TO SCHOOL ATHLETIC FACILITIES AND EVENTS. THE PADDING
USED IN SCHOOL ATHLETIC FACILITIES AND EVENTS, ALTHOUGH  VERY  IMPORTANT

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
