How can I avoid pollen?

  • Keep windows closed and use an air conditioner in your home and car.
  • Pollen counts are highest between 5am-10am so limit outdoor activities at this time.
  • Do not hang laundry outside to dry.
  • Shower after spending time outdoors as pollen can remain on your clothes and in your hair.
  • Use a high-efficiency particulate accumulator (HEPA) air purifier or a HEPA filter for your air conditioner.
