Travel Updates in Door County

Travel Safely & Responsibly This Fall


Due to a recent surge in COVID-19 cases throughout Wisconsin, it is vital that precautions be taken in the interest of public health and safety. Anyone that visits or lives in Door County has to wear a mask when out in public, needs to be vigilant about good hand hygiene, and maintain proper social distancing from others. These critical steps need to be taken now so we can continue welcoming visitors throughout the fall season.


Door County is open and all visitors are welcome. Businesses are taking extra steps and precautions to provide safe experiences for visitors and their employees, and we hope visitors are as excited to visit Door County safely and responsibly this fall as we are to welcome them back. View our welcome letter.

On September 22, 2020, the state of Wisconsin extended an already in place face coverings order. This order requires every individual age five and older to wear a face covering whenever they are indoors or in an enclosed space (other than a private residence) and other people are present in the same room or space. This order is in effect in Door County, and throughout Wisconsin, until November 21, 2020. Frequently asked questions.

We ask you to please be patient with local businesses as they adjust to a statewide order, effective 10/8/2020, that restricts indoor occupancy to 25% of total capacity.

To ensure our tourism industry can continue serving visitors throughout the fall season and beyond, we ask all visitors to travel responsibly. Visitors need to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently and keep a 6-foot social distance. Be patient and be kind. We all love Door County and by taking these precautions we can keep it a welcoming place for all.
