Leaf blowers and long term health

We know that leaf blowers kick up tremendous amounts of fine particulate matter, also known as PM2.5. In addition, gas-powered blowers produce a cocktail of dangerous pollution. These are particularly hazardous to machine operators and, since the fine particles linger in the air for hours, over the long run they can also be hazardous to people in proximity.

New research shows that areas with higher levels of fine particulate matter - also known as PM2.5 - in the air have a clear link to higher Covid-19 death rates. 

Long-term exposure to air pollution, especially with high levels of PM 2.5, makes it more likely a person will suffer severe consequences of respiratory illnesses, including from Covid-19.
