Additionally Turkey Creek boasts a wonderful greenway located on Turkey Creek Road. It has 1.6 miles of tree-lined asphalt trails with an additional 0.3-mile connector to Turkey Creek Woods between Sailview, Kingsgate and Brixworth subdivisions. Turkey Creek Greenway runs in parallel with the southern edge of I-40, neighboring the scenic Turkey Creek Wetland, the largest wetland area in Knox County. Beginning at Lovell Road, the greenway runs behind the Turkey Creek Shopping Center, connecting to the road’s sidewalk system and offers several connections to access the stores and restaurants along the way. The Turkey Creek Greenway connects with the Parkside Greenway in the town of Farragut.
How do I keep from getting sick while out shopping or dining at Turkey Creek in Farragut?
Physicians urge you to reduce the risk of acquiring an infection by practicing proper hand hygiene while out in public, which can be done by washing hands before eating and after using the restroom. They also advise to avoid touching your hands to your face, and to always carry hand sanitizer with you. When you get home from shopping or before you get back in your car to resume traveling, be sure to wash your hands again to limit the germs you bring back with you.
Also, don’t shop on an empty stomach. You don’t want to become hypoglycemic, which occurs when your blood sugar is low. Consider bringing a water bottle to stay hydrated, instead of literally shopping until you drop.
Wear comfortable shoes. Make sure you are wearing the proper footwear to avoid pain and eventual injury after long-term poor decision-making regarding shoes.
Try to avoid carrying no more than 5-10 pounds at a time. Make a trip back to your care and safely store those five pairs of shoes, multiple dresses and Corningware sets you are attempting to lift!
Did you know that over 70% of Emergency Room visits could be treated at an Urgent Care Walk-In Clinic?
In the past, if someone got sick, you would have to put everything on hold and wait in an unfamiliar ER for hours. By the time you were discharged and pick up your prescriptions, you would have pretty much used up several hours of your valuable time. Fortunately, with AFC Urgent Care, that is no longer the case. If you are traveling and someone is not feeling well, it becomes a priority to find medical assistance that is fast and professional.
Emergency Rooms are notorious for long wait times and high cost healthcare. Likewise, it often takes days to get in to see a primary care physician or specialist. Today in America the average cost of an urgent care visit is $100 compared to an emergency room average cost of $500.
