Information on MRSA outreaks

There is a lady I work with that found out that I have had MRSA outbreaks in the past (a couple 2 years ago) I am not currently or recently had any sort of infection or outbreak. She is now afraid to work with me, or be in the office that we share because she is afraid of getting it. I have printed her out information on MRSA, explained that i take special precautions when i have an outbreak (hand washing, covering the infected area, and using special anti biotics) I also encouraged her to see her Dr. if she had more questions or concerns with working with me. She is still not satisfied. How can I explain to her that she is not in grave danger? and it is safe to be around me?
