About "stay well" and "take care" Do people often use "stay well" instead of "take care"? Or they are both frequently used? Are they used in the same situations? Recently I've listented to a radio programm, at the end of it the host sometimes says to the audience " stay well and take care." So, is it only used in this kind of setting or is it broadlly used in daily life or any situation?

I have never heard anyone say "Stay well" as a way to say goodbye. I live in the SE USA, that is for sure not common here. Its probably the radio dj's unique and strange way of saying goodbye. To me, it assumes that everyone is well in the first place, which isnt always the case.

Also in Australia that expression is never used. We simply say take care.
