It's a recurring headline these days: New cases of coronavirus are surging around the country, along with hospitalization rates and Covid-19 deaths.

And with winter coming, health experts say it's only going to get worse, as more people gather indoors to avoid cold weather.

It's simple, but wearing a mask properly is one of the most important ways you can protect yourself and those around you, health experts say.

Wash your hands

With coronavirus infections soaring around the country, the coming winter is only going to make things worse as people spend more time indoors together.

But it's still important to disinfect surfaces and wash your hands after being out or touching objects from outside your home.
