AFC Urgent Care Arden will be closed Christmas Day, December 25th.
It’s a reality—all the news and information we’ve heard about COVID-19 since early 2020 has been alarming. For a while, it seemed like the virus numbers just kept climbing at a crazy rate.
While the numbers have leveled out some in recent weeks, you still want to do everything you can to protect yourself and those you love. That’s why our team is taking a few minutes to break down information about the virus.
Everyone is at risk of developing the virus, but certain people are at a higher risk than others. That includes adults age 65 and older, along with anyone who is immune-compromised in any way.
As of June 1, 2020, more than 1.5 million Americans have been diagnosed with COVID-19. So do what you can to protect your health.
Symptoms of COVID-19
What Can I Do to Protect My Health?
COVID-19 passes from one person to another through airborne particles. Anytime an infected person sneezes, coughs or even breathes, he or she is releasing those airborne particles.
Your best defense, then, is to stay at home as much as possible and avoid close contact with others. The CDC also recommends that you wear a cloth face covering in public if age 2 or older, stay six feet away from others outside the home, and wash your hands regularly.
If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, we are offering COVID-19 testing at our urgent care center. Visit AFC Urgent Care of Arden to learn more or to schedule a testing appointment.
