CFI Cross infection guidelines 'Michael Carruth Help Fight CF Challenge’

'Michael Carruth, Olympic Gold Medallist has very kindly organised the ‘Michael Carruth Help Fight CF Challenge’ which takes place on Friday night June 28th starting at starting at 6pm. Please note that the venue for this challenge is the National Boxing Stadium, which is a large 2000 seat boxing stadium. CFI is cognisant that some people with CF may be interested in attending as spectators.  In the interest of participation but also in regard to patient safety/cross infection we are limiting PWCF participation as spectators to 15 people on a first come basis. In this context we are relying on all people with CF wishing to attend as spectators to let us know that they are attending so we can provide practical advice on avoidance of spectator to spectator cross infection by allocating seats. Please note: No cross infection system is completely safe, so PWCF attending the event do so at their own risk. We would discourage PWCF to participate in the event itself from a safety and cross infection perspective, but again in the interests of participation we would be willing to facilitate 1 person provided we are assured that it is safe to do so.  Applications for PWCF spectators and the 1 participant to Rory Tallon This email address is being protected from spambots.
