Coronavirus, Auto Exposures, and Food Delivery (On-demand - Now Available)
As of Wednesday, March 18, there are 21 states that have shut down restaurants and bars to in-house dining limiting these businesses to takeout or delivery only. The Big “I” Virtual University team (Chris Boggs hasn’t slept in days) has fielded auto insurance related questions which cannot be classed simply as personal or business auto questions because the most common question we’re seeing involves both polices. Does the Personal Auto Policy (PAP) cover food delivery? How and by whom is the restaurant covered especially if there isn’t a Business Auto Policy (BAP)? The Big "I" answers these questions and more. The webinar is being offered both on-demand and online each day at 11:30 a.m. EDT now through Tuesday, March 31st.
