COVID-19 Planning

Happy Faces & Wide Open Spaces!


In order to   be proactive, view the   Door County Public Health  website for the most recent CDC guidance.

Also because of the international travel issues associated with COVID, a number of J1 Visa workers are again not here for our busy tourist season. Waits may be a little longer and hours of operation might be a little different than what we're used to. Be patient   and be kind with your service industry staff. Everyone is doing their best and  we  all  love Door County!

Just a few reminders:

While everyone is open and anxious to greet you, please check ahead if you are making special plans.

  • Social distancing is still real and encouraged in certain situations. 
  • Hand sanitizer stations are everywhere, and  businesses may require you to use them upon entry and exit.
