School and CF have always been a challenging combination. The COVID-19 pandemic – and the recovery – added twists to that formula. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) has updated their advice to address the “new normal.”

In their announcement, CFF noted:

Masking has been shown to effectively reduce the spread of illness, including COVID-19. But some schools and families may approach how to mask differently than you. If you or your child with cystic fibrosis need tips to help feel comfortable masking at school, explore our guide: COVID-19: Returning to School.

The guide offers advice on a lot of topics beyond masking. It also includes links to a risk assessment tool and information in individualized education programs.
