AFC Urgent Care is dedicated to providing accessible, quality health care to people with and without insurance for a fraction of the cost required for a visit at the emergency room. As Arden and surrounding neighborhoods continue to grow, it becomes increasingly important to keep residents safe and healthy. Buncombe County currently hosts more than 271,000 residents with an expected population increase of nearly 40% by 2040. Henderson County’s population increased more than 9.3% from 2010 to 2021 and is expected to continue growing as the 24th largest county in North Carolina. With this ongoing growth, staying healthy is critical to keeping these overlapping communities active and engaged.
Increased population means increased exposure to germs, viruses and bacteria. It’s important to practice healthy habits and to take preventative measures to avoid getting and spreading illnesses. Here are 10 practices that may help you and others avoid getting sick:
1. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds.
2. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
3. Avoid touching your face (eyes, nose and mouth) with unwashed hands.
4. Stay home if you feel sick.
5. Cover your mouth or nose when you cough or sneeze.
6. Clean & disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (doorknobs, lightswitches, toys, etc.).
7. Eat a balanced, nutritious diet.
8. Exercise and move regularly to keep your body healthy and strong.
9. Get plenty of sleep to help your body fight off infections and stay healthy.
10. Avoid smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke.
Sometimes it feels impossible to totally avoid sickness or prevent accidents from happening, even with the healthiest of habits. If you do get sick, visit AFC Urgent Care where we offer rapid Flu, Strep Throat and RSV testing, remedies for sinus infections and bronchitis, treatment for nausea and stomach issues and even digital x-rays for those unexpected accidents and injuries. For all the school and recreational athletes, we also offer walk-in sports physicals so we can help you prevent injuries during your sports season.
