The Starboard bar and restaurant has closed until Tuesday to allow staff to be tested for the coronavirus.By Ken Mammarella

The Starboard in Dewey Beach, one of the premier partying places at Delaware’s coast, announced Friday that it would close for the weekend “to test all of our employees” for the coronavirus.

The bar and restaurant made the announcement on its Facebook page Friday morning, saying Starboard Raw also will close. The Starboard also will reopen Tuesday morning, the post said.

Calls and emails to the restaurant for comments were not immediately returned Friday afternoon.

 

All three of the Starboard’s sister restaurants – Bethany Blues in Lewes and Bethany Beach and 99 Sea Level in Bethany – remained open.

The post cited “an increased exposure within our beach communities” and asked that patrons “join us in our commitment to social distancing and wearing face coverings when we reopen on Tuesday morning for our regular breakfast service and prepare to safely enjoy the rest of our summer season.”

“COVID-19 is serious,” the post said.

 

The temporary closure follows a June 19 announcement by the Delaware Division of Public Health that “at least three out of more than a dozen teens who were living in a rental unit in Dewey Beach recently tested positive for COVID-19. While there, the teens attended several crowded gatherings in Rehoboth, potentially exposing as many as a hundred or more to the virus.

On Tuesday, state health officials said the number of teens known to have been infected had risen to seven. They encouraged anyone who had been to the beach for Senior Weeks activities to be tested.
