3 Ways To Protect Your Business From The Coronavirus

We've got three policies to make your business pandemic-proof.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected nearly every aspect of daily life, limiting everything from our ability to socialize all the way to our ability to work, shop and keep the economy moving. As a result, businesses large and small are facing forced closures, fewer customers, and supply chain disruption.

In the midst of all this economic upheaval, commercial insurance is a solution that can offer your business a measure of security and some much-needed peace of mind.

Acceptance Insurance offers a variety of commercial insurance policies that can provide coverage for lost business income. Here are some policies most likely to cover coronavirus-related losses:

  1. Business Owner's Policy
    Were you forced to close your business because someone at your location or the location of one of your suppliers was infected with COVID-19? This package policy could cover your property (building and contents), business interruption, liability exposure and evacuation costs.
  2. Commercial Property Insurance
    Did your building suffer damage due to a lack of maintenance during the outbreak? This policy could cover the damage or destruction of your buildings, equipment, inventory, losses and repairs.
  3. General Liability Insurance
    This policy could protect you against lawsuits by infected guests or customers who claim your business didn't provide reasonable protection against contracting the COVID-19 or warn them of the risk of exposure.

If any of these circumstances apply to you, reach out to us for more information on getting coverage with one of these commercial insurance policies.* If you're already a customer, reach out to our call center at 866.641.6352 or contact your local agent to discuss your existing coverage. If you're not a customer, you can call 866.641.6352 or submit a request for quote on our website. Keep in mind - we shop other carriers to get you the best price on the coverage you need.

There are more ways to get help if you're not currently covered or can't get coverage. If your business has been forced to close or has been otherwise affected by the coronavirus, check out this list of government agencies, private companies and nonprofit organizations that are ready to support you.

*We can't promise that every customer or every business concern will be covered by a commercial insurance policy.
