The Florida Department of Health sent a letter to parents in Hernando County saying two cases of MRSA are under investigation.
The letter was dated October 17th. It doesn't identify the teens or how they got it. It only said the bacteria could've spread through direct contact with an infected person, the sharing of personal items or touching contaminated surfaces.
"I'm a little concerned because I'm not sure who is getting it, what they're touching," said Hernando High senior Ben Kadow.
MRSA has been getting a lot of attention lately, especially after three Tampa Bay Buccaneer players came down with it this season.
MRSA typically looks like a bump or infected area that can become red and swollen. It is treatable, but in rare cases, can be fatal.
"MRSA is here. You have to assume it's in all of these places. Dorms, schools, locker rooms, so you have to act accordingly," said FOX 13's Dr. Joette Giovinco.
