Spring is here and with it comes hay fever season. In spring time the grass pollen season peaks between October and December so pollen exposure and hay fever will be increased as well as your asthma risk. Both hay fever and COVID-19 include respiratory symptoms and this can be confusing for us.
What should you do? We suggest that if you do have respiratory symptoms and aren’t sure if it’s hay fever or COVID-19, you should get a COVID-19 test right away. You need to then self-isolate until you get your results.
If you’ve got a runny nose or a cough for the first time, a COVID-19 test would be the first, most logical step. You need to then self-isolate until you get your results.
If you have any questions or concerns contact your doctor to discuss these.
