Jingdezhen students unlikely to fill Door County jobs

The ranks of foreign students working in summer jobs and seeing the U.S.A via Door County will likely be a bit thinner.  That's because students from the county's sister city of Jingdezhen, China are unlikely to get J1 visas in time for the tourism season.  Laura Vlies Wotachek, who serves on the Ad Hoc Sister City Committee, says COVID-19 concerns will not likely be resolved in time.




Similar concerns about COVID-19 led to the cancellation of planned visits this year by Door County leaders to Jingdezhen.
