Long Island Schools Take the Lead in MRSA Prevention
Date:12/19/2007

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- CSG/SportsCoatings, in conjunction with the Patchogue-Medford and Smithtown Central School Districts, today announced a ground-breaking deal that brings the most proactive and proven antimicrobial treatment to Long Island, New York.

"MRSA and other skin diseases have quickly become serious issues in high school sports," said Tom Combs, Patchogue-Medford School District Director of Athletics. "I'm pleased to be out in front of the issue by treating Patchogue- Medford High School's wrestling facilities with a long-lasting and proven antimicrobial."

Patchogue-Medford and Smithtown High School East and West addressed a growing concern over MRSA and other skin diseases plaguing wrestlers nationwide by treating their wrestling mats with the Sports Antimicrobial System(R). Offered by CSG/SportsCoatings, the Sports Antimicrobial System inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and fungi on surfaces for up to two years with just one application. Most notably, the system controls the growth of infection-causing bacteria such as MRSA and ringworm.

"I'd like to see an island-wide campaign to have wrestling facilities treated with this proactive technology," said Ed Ehmann, Smithtown Central Superintendent of Schools.

Unlike disinfectants, the dynamic antimicrobial technology in the Sports Antimicrobial System provides surfaces with continuous protection against the growth of potentially harmful microbes including MRSA and ringworm.

"Disinfectants are a great first step in eliminating harmful microorganisms," said Craig Andrews, CEO, CSG/SportsCoatings. "But once disinfectants dry, mats are no longer protected from all the microbial contaminants such as sweat, blood, saliva and whatever else is introduced by bystanders walking all over the mat. The Sports Antimicrobial System is always working to eliminate bacterial contaminants for up to two years after just one application."

CGG/SportsCoatings partners with ENVIROspect of Nesconset, New York as a certified applicator of the Sports Antimicrobial System.

CSG/SportsCoatings is the sports industry's leader in antimicrobial products and treatments. Specializing in controlling potentially harmful bacteria such as staph and MRSA, CSG/SportsCoatings provides over 300 high school, youth, professional and collegiate teams with proven protection for their facilities, equipment and laundry. The company's nationally-renowned fundraising program is the fastest growing fundraiser in America. The highly- acclaimed program has been met with praise throughout country by addressing the monetary needs of fundraising groups as well as prevalent concerns over bacterial contaminants such as staph and MRSA in the community.
