|Hi Paul, and welcome. Please first tell us where in the world you are? Your climatic conditions might have a lot to do with how well your strawberries recover. There's a space in your profile to fill in your location so it will come up in each of your posts - see mine in the upper right corner?
The answer is "it depends" upon how completely dried out they are. Did the polytunnel prevent any rain/snow from getting to the plants? It may be too early in the season to start watering them, but that's the only way you're going to know if any plants have survived. If you water them and they start putting up new leaves then the roots have survived. But if you start them into growth too early and they get nipped by frost, that could be the death of them. So, be careful and watch the weather forecast.
