To all our Wisconsin Dells VISITORS, RESIDENTS, families and friends
With the ongoing uncertainty in the world regarding COVID-19, we navigate the uncertainty together with all of you. Our hope is that wisdells.com can provide a sense of calm and normalcy for you to dream about your next Wisconsin Dells vacation. We ask all of you to follow the proper travel guidance and restrictions set out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and to practice social distancing. We are committed to providing travelers with accurate and timely information on travel updates specific to COVID-19.
Here at the Wisconsin Dells Visitor and Convention Bureau (WDVCB), we’re carefully monitoring the rapidly evolving Coronavirus situation, also known as COVID-19, and we are in regular contact with county and state health agencies for information and guidance.
As is the case with many parts of the world, disruptions to normal business operations in the Wisconsin Dells area should be expected for at least the next few weeks. It is our hope that by taking the necessary precautions now, we can look forward to welcoming back visitors sooner rather than later.
Tourism and hospitality are the backbone of this community. We are home to nearly six thousand residents and a second home to millions more. We #LovetheDells and know we will get through this together.

Wisconsin Dells takes to heart the important role it plays as a vacation destination for millions seeking relaxation and precious time with family and friends. Especially now, we pledge to deliver the same warm hospitality that has defined this community for decades, even if that means doing so from a distance.
Whether tourism business owners, employees, residents or visitors, we're all in this together, and all of us can play a critical role in working to reduce the likelihood of spreading the virus. The CDC guidelines for healthy hygiene are our best resource:
Avoid coughing or sneezing in your hands or in the air. Instead, carry and use a tissue and immediately throw the tissue away. If you don't have a tissue, use the crook of your elbow and immediately wash your hands.
Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose as much as possible.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
Stay home if anyone in your family is feeling sick and avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.
Stay informed with the most up-to-date factual information by visiting the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) website, which covers symptoms, prevention, and FAQ's, as well as the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website.
We’re here to assist and to welcome you when you’re ready to visit.
