Mask Away Your Seasonal Allergies
Aaaa-choo! ‘Tis the season, right? The one with all the sneezing, runny noses, and itchy eyes. The good news is, those masks you’ve already gotten used to wearing might offer some relief.
Surgical masks block particles as small as 3 micrometers, so they do a great job catching those pesky pollen grains that make you sneeze (which are around 10 micrometers). Even cloth masks will help. So grab your mask when you’re going to do yard work, hang out in the garden, or go for a walk outdoors, and you might find yourself considerably less sneezy. (Of course, the CDC wants you to keep wearing your mask in public anyway, allergies aside.)
