Cedar pollen allergy March 17

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Allergy and Asthma Clinic is warning those with allergies to just stay inside today.

Experts have issued an allergy alert because of high levels of cedar pollen.

Cedar pollen is in the “very high” category and the OAAC says we are currently under an “extreme exposure” situation.

If you have allergies, the best remedy is to stay inside.

Specialists said this is especially important for those with allergic bronchial asthma.

Officials also recommend keeping the windows closed, taking a shower after coming inside and leaving shoes outside so you don’t track pollen throughout the house.
