Following the Prime Ministers’ announcement we are receiving a high number of queries relating to the impact a further lockdown will have on our animal trade insurance policies. Please see below our answers to the two most commonly asked questions:
Should we carry on working?
We are unable to comment on whether you should continue to trade as an essential worker/service. Government guidelines should be followed and your Local Authority and/or trade body should be able to provide you with guidance.
Is my policy operative and would it respond in the event of a claim?
In simple terms, yes. There is nothing within our policy that would exclude cover and so the policy would respond, subject always to the terms and conditions of the policy.
We appreciate that this is a fast moving situation and will post regular updates to our website. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
