Sturgeon Bay – The rapidly rising number of active COVID-19 cases in Door County has caused the City of Sturgeon Bay to close City Hall and Municipal Services to walk-in customers, effective Nov. 4.
In a press release announcing the decision, the city stressed the importance of limiting the opportunity for transmission as a proven strategy that could play a critical role in slowing an outbreak of COVID-19. The city is concerned there could be a greater likelihood of exposure for city employees as the number of active cases rises.
Having multiple people out at the same time could impair the city’s ability to provide some services and carry out some functions, especially within the smaller administrative departments. And, as the city learned during the shutdown earlier this year, most walk-in services can be provided by telephone, email or, if necessary, appointment.

Payments can be made by mail, electronically or in person at a drop box outside City Hall. Meetings of the Common Council and committees are still open to the public, but participants are encouraged to share their feedback with council members by email or phone.
