Elkhart Lake is Now Open for Travel

As we welcome visitors back, a new dedication to cleanliness and safety echoes throughout our Village. All of our businesses are taking extra precautions to create a safe experience for customers and their employees. We will continue to follow the guidance from state health authorities, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), and CDC to provide businesses with updated operating guidelines and procedures. Even though the way we travel has changed, we need to continue to work together, take care of each other, and remember to be kind. When you are ready to start traveling again, your summer sanctuary will be waiting.


If you are visiting the Elkhart Lake area, please take in consideration the following:

Each of our businesses are following guidelines and best practices outlined by Sheboygan County and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corportation (WEDC) to protect the health and safety of their customers and staff.

  • Please be kind, respectful and patient.
  • Some businesses may be running at 25 percent occupancy and are adjusting to a new way of operating.
  • Wait times at restaurants may be longer then usual, so please be patient.
  • Some businesses may have limited menus and may run out of certain menu items.
  • Please remember that we are all going through uncharted territory and each of our businesses are trying their best to provide the best service under these circumstances.

Protective steps outlined by the CDC:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
