Latest Pollen Count in for Mesa County
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The latest pollen count is in and the Mesa County Health Department says the recent breezy conditions won't be helping people suffering from allergies.
Air quality experts say pollen from Poplar, Cottonwood and Aspen trees are still very prevalent.
As the warmer spring and summer months pass, grass and weed pollen will start picking up dramatically.
"People are allergic to different types of pollen and some people seem to be allergic to just about all of it, so if you know what you're specifically allergic to, that can help plan your activity level," said Edward Brotski, an air quality specialist with the Mesa County Health Department.
Officials take pollen counts twice a week and say they anticipate it to stay in the moderate range this week because of the recent winds.
