COVID-19 outbreak 

Statement regarding the 43rd European Cystic Fibrosis Conference

With everyone’s wellbeing and safety being paramount, we are continually monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and following the latest guidance from the World Health Organization and the French Health Authorities. Events have taken an even more serious turn over the last few days with many countries including France declaring containment for the forseeable future. This clearly has consequences for the planning of the ECFS Conference to be held in Lyon in 3-6 June. We are currently investigating the different options available to us.
As a result, registration to the Conference is on hold for the moment. We will update the participants, exhibitors and sponsors as soon as news become available.
