Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning their hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering their cough or sneeze with a tissue or their inner elbow and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
As an added precaution to preserve the health and safety of people with CF, the Foundation has an attendance policy for all Foundation events. Medical evidence shows that potentially destructive germs may spread among people with CF. These germs can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. We know that some of these germs can be spread through direct and indirect contact as well as through droplets that travel short distances through the air when a person coughs or sneezes.
More than one person with CF may attend an outdoor event. However, to reduce the risk of cross-infection at events that we sponsor, people with CF should maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other. The Foundation cannot accept responsibility for any risk to health involved in attending events. We encourage you and your family to consider all potential risks while making informed decisions about your health.
