  • Extend all deadlines for policyholders to report claims or submit other communications related to claims
  • Take all practicable steps to provide opportunities for policyholders to report claims
  • Immediately institute a grace period for premium payments for all insurance policies issued, delivered, or covering a risk in the affected areas
