The U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says pollen counts typically are higher between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. and on dry, hot and windy days.
The agency suggests:
- Stay inside between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m.
- Engage in outdoor activities in the late afternoon or after a heavy rain.
- Keep windows in your home and car closed to reduce exposure to pollen.
- To stay cool, use an air conditioner while avoiding window and attic fans.
- Be aware that pollen can be brought inside on people and pets.
- Dry clothes in an automatic dryer, rather than hanging them outside.
