Dangers of single asbestos exposure

Hi all
I'll cut straight to the point
At the moment, I am very anxious and stressed about my situation. But what's done is done.
Me and a group of friends decided to enter an abandoned asylum at night due to it being a hotspot for people wanting to feel spooked out or whatnot
Little did I know, the whole facility was littered with asbestos, Which I found out AFTER our stay there. I regret the adventure almost immediately.
The walls were torn to bits, dust was everywhere and the roof was practically non existent. . We stayed for about an hour, but my shirt and hand was covering my mouth and nose for the most part.
We tried to minimise the amount of dust we kicked up if that helps at all.

Now what are my risks of any health implications down the road. This is my first time directly being exposed to asbestos as far as I know. And if the asbestos was settled and undisturbed would that help in minimising the risk?
Also is it safe to clean my clothes or would it be safer just to throw everything out? I'm really stressed and after finding out about its many effects, I am absolutely terrified.
Thanks ))
