COVID-19 Resources

Stay healthy and safe

The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation has been closely monitoring the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) and its spread throughout the United States.  The number of patients affected by COVID-19 is increasing and our understanding of the effects of the virus is expanding.

Based on experiences throughout the world and more recently in the U.S., people who have chronic medical issues may be at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19, including those with pulmonary fibrosis.  Public health officials recommend patients in the higher risk category should reduce the risk of being exposed to COVID-19.

Below are resources available for pulmonary fibrosis patients, caregivers, and loved ones. If you have any questions, please call our Patient Communication Center at 844.TalkPFF or pcc@pulmonaryfibrosis.org.
