Business Interruption and Related Coverage In California, Special Request for Information
In response to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19"), the California Department of Insurance has immediate questions related to "business interruption" coverages provided by commercial insurance policies. The expanding prevalence of COVID-19 within California and recent social distancing and "shelter in place" directives from local governments and the Governor to reduce the continued rapid spread of the virus have left California businesses and the state facing uncertainty and weighing public policy options. In order to understand the number and scope of business interruption type coverages in effect, and the approximate number of policies that exclude viruses such as COVID-19, the California Department of Insurance is issuing an urgent data survey of insurers related to their commercial business interruption policies.
The purpose of this website is to provide survey respondents and interested parties with a central point of access to retrieve the survey materials and related information.
