Corona Virus

Folks with NF are at no greater risk for either getting COVID-19 or becoming severely ill as a result of it than anyone else.  NF in and of itself is not a risk factor.  That said, some folks with NF also have other underlying health problems that could put them at greater risk or cause their experience of illness to be different.   At this time, COVID-19 provides a risk to all of us and it is important to follow the CDC guidelines for social distancing, handwashing, avoiding sick contacts and self care.
