The winter months tend to push our social lives inside, but this year, that shift could cause more people to contract the coronavirus from even small gatherings. That’s why Dr. Ranit Mishori of Georgetown University advocates for making this winter our “most outdoorsy” one yet, noting that masks serve the dual purpose of protecting us from the virus and the bitter cold.
“Have a couple of good coats, a few layers, and go out. Spend more time outside,” Mishori told the PBS NewsHour’s John Yang in a conversation on Nov. 23. “If you spend time outside doing some physical activity, you can keep up the temperature and feel a little warmer.”
