As Door County waits to find out just how big the influx of summer employees will be in the area, people won’t have to worry about their COVID19 vaccine eligibility. Door County Public Health has confirmed that seasonal employees, including summer Work Travel exchange visitors from around the globe can get vaccinated. This will serve as a relief to employees who have not been afforded the chance to get vaccinated in their home country. They are also able to make an appointment if they’re waiting for their second shot, as long as they don’t intermix the vaccine they receive.
Destination Door County Membership Director Phil Berndt emphasizes that DDC wants employees vaccinated. Berndt cites vaccinations as a catalyst for getting Door County back to normal.
Berndt adds that he’s hearing most students in Door County for the summer are vaccinated already. He also mentions that for people to come from other nations, they have to test negatively for COVID19. As of now some J-1 students have made their way to Door County, but with plenty of consulate offices around the world still closed, the end amount of J-1 students Door County will get remains uncertain.
