Good luck.
Yeesh. I have mild asthma and had pneumonia about a year and a half ago. I'll try to avoid that! D:

Here is a really great and short article on your question

I know at school a few semesters ago a guy on the mens soccer team had MRSA and he was quarantined and the gym was shut down for a good scrub down. It all depends on the type of MRSA it is and how it can be contacted. Good luck with everything and feel better.
