Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
To reduce the
risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask
that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with
soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze
with a tissue or your inner elbow and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from
anyone with a cold or infection.
evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and
indirect contact as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a
person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed
decline in lung function. To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection,
the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF
to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific
time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with
CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
