An editorial error occurred in the sixth letter of this cluster on screening for MRSA by Peter Wilson and L J Dunn (5 July, p 58). Editing changed the sense of the last sentence of the fourth paragraph. The sentence should have read: “Consistent with these correlations, in the 1980s, unlike the current decade, there were no cases of MRSA in samples from our community, indicating that in our setting MRSA is no longer exclusively a hospital organism.”
