Welcome to Captain Curt's Crab & Tiki Bar,
a traditional Siesta Key Restaurant

Captain Curt's Crab & Oyster Bar, The Sniki Tiki,
The Tiki Trading Co. Shops, and the Coffee Shop
Temporarily Closed

Over the past few months, Captain Curt's has implemented several policies to monitor the health of our staff and minimize the chance of an employee that has contracted COVID-19 ever exposes our customers or their coworkers. These include daily temperature checks, mandatory masks, and removing staff from the schedule and mandating testing for any and all potential at risk individuals.

We strongly feel that it is right to inform everyone that this
afternoon we received a positive result.

We hoped to never have to send out this message, however in these difficult times we feel that taking swift action with full transparency into our process is the morally correct and logical way to handle this.
At the beginning of the COVID outbreak, we consulted with medical professionals and various other resources to put in place a strategy if this were to occur. We have immediately implemented this plan, which is as follows.

1. Cease all operations as we evaluate the safest way and schedule to move forward.

2. Notify all staff and mandate they undergo COVID testing and inform us of the results, and to self-quarantine pending test results.
As part of our contingency plan, we consulted with an industry leader in the Sarasota Healthcare System to secure the most accurate and efficient tests available, as the staterun testing sites are at capacity and have a much longer turnaround time.

3. Our staff will only be permitted to return to work after a confirmed NEGATIVE test result.

4. As COVID-Negative staff return to work, they will begin to thoroughly deep clean our facility.

5. After the deep cleaning is completed and we have enough staff to function, we will make an announcement that we are resuming normal operations.

Although we wish for the best, after we reopen, we fully realize that COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge for our industry and the world. Therefore, every safeguard will remain in place and a "no-contact" order with any COVID-Positive individual will be a stipulation for all staff moving forward. As we follow our plan of action, we can assure you that we will move methodically and cut no corners. The health and safety of our customers and staff are our number one priority. We ask for the patience, understanding, and support of the public as we take this one step at a time.
