How Long can Mrsa Live Outside the Body?

Determining how long MRSA can live outside the body is an important step to preventing the spread of this illness. MRSA can live outside the body for months at a time. The exact length of time will vary, by the amount of humidity, the surface in question, etc. You can find more information here: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/ar_mrsa_Enviro_Manage.html#2
