Business interruption insurance can provide coverage for losses of income due to physical loss or damage to property. Questions have arisen as to whether this type of policy covers business interruption due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS), recently added a FAQ page related to these questions. You can find the page here. If you have questions about coverage, the first thing you should do is review the terms of your own policy. If you still have questions, this FAQ page is a good place to look next. We are also available to assist you.
