School’s out for summer and if your community isn’t out yet, it will be shortly. Summertime is a time for being active outdoors, trying new things, and making the most of longer daylight. Even if you’re out there having fun, illness and injury can still work their way into the summer fun.

  1. Stay Active. It’s no secret that kids (and adults too) who are active remain healthier throughout their life.
  2. Stay hydrated. Make sure you are drinking enough water to keep your body healthy and cool during summertime activities.
  3. Be careful. Kids love to run around playing outdoors. But sometimes tag can turn into an injury. Whether it’s a sprained ankle or wrist, the healthcare providers at Stony Creek Urgent Care got you covered.
  4. Use sun protection. KeepingĀ  your skin protected from the sun’s harmful rays is critical for staying healthy over the summer.

This is just a list to get started. What other ways can you keep your child healthy this summer? The healthcare providers and staff and Stony Creek Urgent Care wish everyone a safe, happy, and healthy summer vacation!
