Share post:

Bourbonnais, IL – As spring progresses, residents of Bourbonnais in Kankakee County are grappling with a significant rise in allergy symptoms due to a spike in pollen counts. 

Today’s pollen levels, rated at 8.7 out of 12, are classified as medium-high, particularly from prevalent allergens such as maple, birch, and ash trees. Local healthcare providers are advising those with allergies to take extra precautions.

Effective strategies include using air purifiers indoors, keeping windows closed during high pollen periods, and using over-the-counter allergy medications as needed. The pollen surge coincides with favorable weather conditions that accelerate pollen release, impacting air quality and making it challenging for allergy sufferers to enjoy time outdoors without discomfort. With forecasts predicting continued high pollen counts in the coming days, residents are encouraged to stay vigilant and prepared for peak allergy season.
