You are in hardiness zone 8 and lantana is hardy to zone 9 so you may want to dig them up. Since you are on the border of hardiness you could just mulch them real well. They will die back to the ground as the temperatures drop, but they should return in spring.
If you want to be absolutely sure you don't lose them, I would dig them up and store them inside for the winter. There is a hardier variety, which you may have, that overwinters as far as zone 6 and 7. Could you possibly have that one? It is usually yellow/orange.
