Today a scratchy throat and runny nose is enough to scare us into thinking that we may have COVID-19, but these symptoms could also be seasonal allergies. Common symptoms can be confusing but something to note is that generally seasonal allergies do NOT cause a fever. Here’s a helpful reference chart to compare symptoms:
Health care providers recommend taking your allergy medication early—before you develop symptoms. Also, remember to close your car and house windows to avoid pollen and change your clothes when you come in from the outside.
