What is cross-infection
For people with cystic fibrosis (CF), cross-infection poses serious health risks - people with CF grow bugs in their lungs which are usually harmless to people who don't have the condition, but can be easily transmitted from one person with CF to another and be very harmful.

Cross-infection at events
Meetings and conferences are places where cross-infection could occur, so even at cystic fibrosis-related events, or events organised by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, there should only be one person with CF in attendance at a time.
We offer internet forums and platforms to enable people with CF to interact safely, and we live stream events wherever possible. For our UK Cystic Fibrosis Conference we also recorded interviews with some of our key speakers to help bring the event to life for people who were unable to attend.
