Suffolk County police responded to reports of a Patchogue bar allegedly not abiding by the state's virus-related shutdown order.
Officials say they fielded several calls Friday night about the Dublin Deck Tiki Bar and Grill. Videos on social media appeared to show patrons gathering inside.
Secretary to Gov. Andrew Cuomo , says people in the videos didn't appear to be following proper protocol.
"They weren't wearing masks," DeRosa says. "That's stupid. It's stupid for you, it's stupid for your surrounding patrons, it's stupid for the bar."
The Dublin Deck has deleted its Facebook page, but before doing so the owner issued an apology for the incident and said customers who were picking up food and drink orders to go had taken shelter inside when it started to rain. 
He wrote on social media that "moving forward we have restructured our 'to go' model to ensure that this doesn't happen again."
In response to the owner's apology, Gov. Cuomo said "It's supposed to be curbside pickup, right? That doesn't sound like curbside pickup."
The Suffolk Police Department says no summonses were issued, but County Executive Steve Bellone says that the bar will be closely monitored going forward.
Suffolk police say officers returned to the Dublin Deck twice on Friday night and again on Saturday. They say they are also monitoring other establishments in the area to ensure compliance.
