The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread human tragedy, resulting in more than forty thousand (as of this writing) deaths worldwide in the space of a few months. It is unknown whether the pandemic will abate in a couple of months or will continue to ebb and flow in recurring outbreaks. In an effort to “flatten the curve” of the outbreak, governments around the world have issued “shelter-in-place” or “lockdown” orders, resulting in the discontinuation or disruption of all but “essential” business activity. As businesses face multiple streams of loss of unknown duration and impact, it is natural to ask whether the insurance for which substantial premiums have been paid might provide some protection or help to offset those losses. This webinar focuses on these insurance issues and provides guidance on next steps and best practices.
