Two restaurants on Hatteras Island have temporarily closed after an employee tested positive for COVID-19 — the Quarterdeck Restaurant & Bar and the Frisco Sandwich Company.
In a Facebook post from June 25, the Quarterdeck Restaurant & Bar in Frisco reported that, “I would like to share that at least one of our employees has tested positive thus far. We still have several tests that have not come back yet…I am so glad we stopped, closed, and got tested before we were even notified, so scary! Remember, because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Please be careful and look out for one another!
I am so thankful for all of your support thus far as we take the time to try and keep our staff, community, and customers healthy. We will unfortunately be closed until further notice. Together we can get through this! ”
Also on June 25, the Frisco Sandwich Company posted similar news.
“We feel obligated to inform our customers and our community that one of our staff members has tested positive for COVID19. Although we are all symptom free, we will be closed until the rest of us are tested. Please Stay Safe.”
There has been a significant increase in recent COVID-19 cases reported in Dare County, with 9 new cases on June 25 and 29 new cases in the past five days.
