Virginia School District Gets Proactive Against MRSA
Date:12/17/2007

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- CSG/SportsCoatings today announced a major deal that brings its industry-leading antimicrobial products, SportsAide(R) XL and FabricAide(TM), to 25 high schools in Virginia's Fairfax County School District.

"Fairfax County School District is the model for how schools and other major organizations can take proactive steps towards minimizing prevalent bacterial issues like staph and MRSA," said CSG/SportsCoatings CEO Craig Andrews. "Fairfax should be commended for such a proactive approach.

"MRSA has become an epidemic of sorts and is emerging as one of the main causes of critical illness in children including young athletes," said Dr. Thomas Shaney, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

SportsAide XL and FabricAide are widely considered the most proven and proactive method of inhibiting the growth of potentially harmful bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus (staph) and MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) on surfaces and fabrics. The dynamic antimicrobial technology in both products provides continuous protection against the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi. Just one application of SportsAide XL will inhibit the growth of infection causing microbial contamination for up to 30 days. FabricAide, a laundry conditioner, imparts a layer of antimicrobial protection on fabrics such as uniforms and towels for up to 30 washes.

"While a good first step, disinfectants have proven to be ineffective as a long-term solution for potentially harmful microorganisms," said Andrews. "Our products bring peace-of-mind as a long-term solution to bacterial concerns."

Fairfax County School District, the 13th largest school system in America, will be using the products in the regular maintenance of its high schools' athletic facilities. SportsAide XL can be used to treat training tables, weight benches, protective equipment and a variety of other surfaces commonly found in sports. The district can use FabricAide in its athletic laundry such as uniforms, towels and socks.

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 250 high school, youth, professional and collegiate teams with proven protection for their facilities and equipment. The company's nationally-renowned fundraising program is the fastest growing fundraiser in America.
