Door County officials are encouraging potential tourists to postpone their visits until later in the year as it tries to control the spread of the coronavirus. In a release from the county Wednesday afternoon, it asks tourists to not come to Door County for the next 30 days as a way to provide the safest public health environment for residents. County Board Chairperson Dave Lienau appreciates the support it has received from the public and private sectors. He says that even includes many lodging entities not accepting new reservations and canceling booked rooms within the next month.
Door County and seven other municipalities have declared public health emergencies in the past week due to the pandemic that has affected over 100 people in the state, including one case recently in Brown County.
