Delaware Insurance Commissioner Shares Reopening Reminders

May 27, 2020

The Delaware Department of Insurance is sharing reminders with business owners regarding important measures to take as phased reopenings begin and providing resources to enhance worker and customer safety.

Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro has recommended that businesses revisit their insurance plans in order to verify that they remain active and account for any changes that occurred due to COVID-19 related closures and economic impacts.

“Businesses have gone through a lot of transition during COVID-19, and their insurance circumstances may have changed as well,” he said in a Delaware Department of Insurance press release.

Governor John Carney’s reopening plan provides a phased approach to economic rehabilitation, with Phase 1 of business openings beginning on June 1.

During Phase 1, enumerated establishments including restaurants, retail establishments and malls may open with a maximum capacity of 30%, requiring face coverings and strict social distancing guidelines. Industry-specific requirements are included in the reopening plan.

“As businesses bring employees back to work and start interacting with members of the public, there are many aspects of COVID-19 prevention that management should take into account to ensure the safety of all involved,” Navarro said in the release.
