Struggling With Social Distancing

Lucky for you, we’ve known about social distancing for as long as we can remember. Because we have cystic fibrosis (CF), we know how to live our best lives while avoiding germs and viruses. And we're here to help you do it, too.

Get Some Tips

Listen to the Real Experts

CF is a genetic condition that makes it easy for lungs to get infections. And it makes those infections very dangerous.

People born with CF have spent lots of time social distancing, self-isolating, hand sanitizing, and wiping stuff down. If there's something you can do to avoid germs and viruses, we know about it and we've done it. A lot. And if there's a way to stay safe while living an awesome life, we know that, too.

So we've got some tips to help you stay happy and stay healthy in this new world.
