(Portland, OR) -- Allergy season is causing some to question symptoms amid the pandemic. This has the Providence Medical Group clarifying the difference in symptoms between allergies and COVID-19. Dr. Linda Cruz, chief medical officer, says generally a fever and body aches aren't symptoms you experience with allergies. Cruz also said itchy eyes, sneezing, and congestion aren't generally related to COVID-19. She recommends if you have a fever, cough, and shortness of breath to contact your healthcare provider.
