OVMC, East Ohio begin annual pollen testing

Updated: Tuesday, March 25 2014, 06:29 PM EDT

Even though it doesn’t feel like it now, spring is here and allergy season is just around the corner.
To get ready for it, Ohio Valley Medical Center and East Ohio Regional Hospital started their annual pollen testing Tuesday.
“Tree pollen is really kicking in this area in the middle of march, but we've kind held off a little,” said Tim Jones, corporate supervision from the department of anatomic pathology. “We're doing it late march because the weather has been so cold.”
Despite the cold weather, Jones says he did spot tree and mold spores Monday.
As the week continues and temperatures warm, Jones e says the amount tree pollen will likely go up.
And as the season continues, the pollens will change.
The reports are updated daily.
