Covid 19 is a virus that attacks the lungs.  Studies show that people who are exposed to elevated levels of fine particulates and other forms of air pollution are at higher risk of serious complications from the virus.  This elevated health risk is especially true for people who operate gas powered leaf blowers.  For these reasons, many people are advocating for a moratorium on the use of gas powered leaf blowers during the pandemic.
