Don't Confuse Allergies for COVID-19
This spring, Tennessee’s peak allergy season is taking place amid the global COVID-19
pandemic. Because allergies and COVID-19 share a few symptoms, some people may mistakenly
blame their fever and cough on the pollen floating through the air.
Allergy-related symptoms – sinus drainage, headaches, throat irritation and more –
could be caused by COVID-19.
Please check the CDC’s list of symptoms or use the Peay Mobile app Daily Pre-Screening
to see if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. If you do have symptoms of the virus, do
not come to campus. Get tested as soon as possible. To add another layer of protection,
please consider getting the vaccine, if you haven’t already. By taking these steps,
you will help us squash COVID-19 and its growing variants.
