As part of your business continuity review you should check your insurance policies to see whether you have some insurance to cover losses arising from certain types of business interruption (eg BI insurance) or the death or incapacity of key personnel (eg keyman insurance).
Many BI insurance policies do not generally cover disruption caused by pandemic crisis or interruption. If you do not have any insurance cover for the pandemic and cannot rely on any of the other force majeure events be proactive and ensure that you take out pandemic cover when renewing your policy. Your premium may increase but the gains from obtaining this insurance will cover any premium increases.
