A key refrain from government officials and public health experts has not changed: Defeat COVID-19 by staying away from each other (and wash your hands, of course). So sparsely populated Door County, with its state parks and wide-open spaces, might seem like an ideal place for a city dweller to weather the viral storm. But the early arrival of vacationers and part-time residents has sparked fierce pushback from full-time residents, Myles Dannhausen Jr., editor and co-owner of the Door County Pulse, reports in partnership with Wisconsin Watch. Some worry that the relatively old population and lack of medical facilities could make an outbreak particularly deadly.
