- Monday, March 23rd - Governor Tony Evers announces he will be issuing SAFER AT HOME order tomorrow.  More details to come.  See announcement.

The Village of Ephraim has declared a Health Emergency regarding the spread of COVID-19. Village officials are working diligently to assist in preventing the spread of Coronavirus. We ask that the public practice “social distancing” in an effort to prevent the spread.

All non-essential Village committee meetings will be postponed indefinitely, effective immediately. Staff will be severely limiting in person contact and will be insisting on phone or digital means of communication moving forward. All village buildings will be closed to the public during this time with the exception of limited accessibility in order to facilitate in person absentee voting. With this said it is quite easy to complete you civic duty and cast your vote in the April election without risk of potentially exposing yourself or our Village Clerk by venturing out to the Admin. Office. Please review our election page or contact Andrea about this.

Need Help?

The Door County Fire Chiefs Association has joined forces with other local entities to create the Door County Emergency Support Coalition in order to provide information and assistance to the residents and guests of Door County through the duration of the hardships surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.

That coalition’s assistance includes delivering and shopping for food and supplies, helping to perform welfare checks for family or neighbors, and connecting people with child-care support. The coalition is also seeking volunteers with health-care backgrounds to potentially assist with interpreting coronavirus guidelines.

Door County Health Advisory to Seasonal and Second Homeowners

Pursuant to WI. Stat. 252.03(1), the Door County Public Health Officer has issued a Travel Advisory Order due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the national spread of the COVID-19 virus:

Due to high community transmission in certain area of the state and across the nation, Door County Public Health is recommending that you stay in your permanent home area if you have a seasonal or second home in Door County. Door County has well trained and capable medical personnel, but staffing is limited and stretched thin during this emergency. We make this statement in hopes of limiting the demands placed on local hospitals, emergency personnel, nurses and doctors.
People who have seasonal homes in Door County, please stay at your winter homes at this time. If you are already back in Door County you are encouraged to self-quarantine for fourteen (14) days.
Door County has a large population of older adults and others who are identified to have a higher risk of serious complications from COVID-19. It is our top priority to keep people in Door County healthy and safe.
On March 17, 2020, the Door County Board of Supervisors issued a countywide COVID-19 Emergency Declaration. Please be aware that additional health and travel restrictions may be imposed during this time.
This is an ever-changing and very serious health situation and Door County needs to be diligent in its response. Door County Public Health is reminding all county residents to practice good social distancing and to self isolate as much as possible. Individuals should limit trips out of the house to essential travel.
