This spring, out of concern for our community’s health and safety, we are asking visitors to postpone their trips and stay home to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our local communities are working hard to provide an up-to-date list of business hours, closures, schedules, and changes to normal business operations. We have done our best to make sure the following information is current and accurate, please call or check with individual businesses and events to make sure they are operating before venturing out.
If your business information is not listed or needs to be corrected, please contact email@example.com or contact your community coordinator for a link that will allow access to edit the document. If you've recently submitted your business's information, please be patient as we continue to update our records.
Over the past several weeks the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has raised health concerns around the world. As a result, federal, state, and local health authorities have issued orders that currently prohibit nonessential travel. The state of Wisconsin's order on nonessential travel began at 8am on March 25, 2020 and remains in effect for 30 days, or until a superseding order is issued. This order, along with previous orders restricting mass gatherings to less than 10 people and temporary restrictions on businesses such as lodging and restaurants, forces visitors to postpone travel to Door County and all Wisconsin locations until the order is lifted, hopefully by April 24, 2020.
Due to the health crisis, the Door County Welcome Center has been temporarily closed, but we are still available for assistance virtually by email, phone, or through our social media channels. Please send your non-urgent questions about future travel plans in Door County to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-527-3529 and leave a message and a call back number, and a destination specialist will be back in touch with you. Anyone wishing to purchase Door County Gift Certificates may continue to do so on DoorCounty.com or by calling 800-527-3529 and leaving a message with a call back number. Processing times may vary.
Destination Door County will continue to monitor this evolving situation through updates from federal, state, and local health authorities as well as updates from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, Destinations International, and the U.S. Travel Association.
While travel is currently suspended through April 24, we encourage you to support Door County businesses in whatever manner you can—from your permanent residence. Make a lodging reservation for future travel, buy a gift certificate to use at a local business on your next trip, write an online review of your favorite Door County place, or share a special memory you've had in Door County on social media. We'll also be sharing photos on Facebook and Instagram of the beautiful landscapes and inspiring views that await you on the other side of these uncertain times and we encourage you to share your favorite Door County photos using #VirtualDoCo.
