The answer is, it varies. Some lenders offering Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and other types of emergency SBA 7(a) funding may require you to have business insurance to be eligible for COVID-19 relief.
It depends on the policy. In general, if you only have general liability coverage, your insurance policy likely doesn’t cover that. Most general liability policies won’t cover any business interruption as a result of disease or illness.
If you have BOP coverage, we encourage you to reach out directly to your insurance carrier to file a claim. While most insurers may not cover the claim, you can ask your insurer’s claims team to look at your exact scenario and policy to make a decision.
We work closely with insurers to understand the different types of products they’re currently offering customers. At this time, we’re not aware of any insurers who are offering insurance coverage for loss of income due to COVID-19.
To keep your customers and employees safe and healthy, we recommend following the CDC’s guidance to clean your hands often, avoid close contact, and cover your nose and mouth with a cloth face cover.
We know some of these answers might not be what you’re looking for.
