Travel Updates in Door County

Travel Safely & Responsibly This Winter


Due to continued 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 simple yet critical steps are vital and will allow us to continue welcoming visitors throughout the winter season.


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

On November 20, 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 January 19, 2021. Frequently asked questions.

We ask you to please be patient with local businesses as they adjust their indoor capacity as needed to provide a safe experience for customers and employees.

To ensure our tourism industry can continue serving visitors throughout the winter 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.
