Coronavirus could keep Jingdezhen students away

The coronavirus outbreak is expected to peak in the spring, though the impact could still be felt in Door County this summer.  Businesses that depend on foreign students for employees may find few workers from the county's sister city of Jingdezhen, China.  Helen Bacon, Chair of the Door County Sister City Ad Hoc Informal Advisory Group, says 93 cases of coronavirus have been detected in Jingdezhen and that's had an effect on the city's university. 


Bacon also says concerns about the coronavirus have put a planned spring trade show visit to Jingdezhen by county leaders on hold.
