Traffic to Washington Island picking up

As the state has slowly opened up over the last month, so has the activity on Washington Island. Last week the Washington Island Ferry increased its daily roundtrips from six to 11 and added a pair of Friday night trips to meet the demand. Monday marked the first day the island’s Mosling Recreation Center pool was open to members on a trial basis, which was almost two weeks after it opened its weight room. Though it is not at the level it has been in the past, Washington Island Chairperson Richard Tobey says he is happy to see people feel comfortable visiting again.

While some events like the Washington Island Scandinavian Festival have been canceled, Tobey says they are working with the Door County Public Health Department to see if events like the Death’s Door BBQ competition can still take place with the proper precautions.
