Can staph infection spread thru the air? Any answers appreciated!

No. Staph infections are only spread by direct contact. This can be with the infection on the person, or in contact with things like towels and soiled clothes. Good hand washing will prevent spread to you. Clean out tubs and showers with a bleach solution to kill bacteria on surfaces.
