The Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor is nearing the midway point of its slow reopening. For the entire month of July, there is a hard capacity limit for the venue set at ten people. It becomes 50 in August. Village Administrator Ryan Heise says keeping the number of patrons allowed at a fixed amount helps bring about certainty, which aids with customer relations.
As COVID-19 cases spike statewide, Door County has decided not to adopt strict mitigation measures such as mandatory masking. The possibility of changing guidance from local health officials is something the Kress must take into account when setting policy, says Heise.
