Coronavirus and Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis WA has consulted with Perth Children’s Hospital (PCH) in regards to the growing concerns from our families about the recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China.
You are advised to follow the recommendations here, provided by the Australian Department of Health.
Please contact the team at PCH if you have growing concerns or are worried about your child’s health.
We are aware that this is a time of great concern for everyone and especially if you are caring for someone with a respiratory condition such as CF. Please contact our social worker Kathryn on 08 6457 7333 if you would like further support.
As this is the beginning of a new school year it is timely to provide the school with our CF factsheet, Infection Control in Schools and the CF Smart school letter that can be distributed to parents highlighting how everyone can help to keep the school community healthy and raise awareness that there is a child with CF in the class.
