Connecticut Reminds Businesses to Verify Insurance Coverage During Reopening

May 21, 2020

Connecticut Insurance Commissioner Andrew N. Mais and Economic Development Commissioner David Lehman are reminding businesses to make sure their insurance coverage accurately reflects any changed circumstances as they move to comply with Governor Ned Lamont’s reopening guidelines.

“The pandemic has already caused undue hardship to families and businesses and further risk to public health and to businesses should be kept to a minimum,” Mais said in a Connecticut Insurance Department press release. “Business owners should verify that the coverage they have is still right for them, and that they are prepared both for reopening and for hazards like the upcoming hurricane season.”

The department is encouraging businesses or residents who have questions or concerns regarding their insurance coverage during the phased reopening of businesses to reach out to their insurance agent, broker or carrier.

The first phase of the state’s scheduled reopening began on May 20. Reopen Connecticut and the Department of Economic Development have released guidance and a list of the types of businesses eligible to reopen on May 20.
