Restaurants, Delivery Drivers Should Check Coverage

Many restaurants and drivers may have been covered only on a temporary basis.
June 24, 2020

Wisconsin Insurance Commissioner Mark Afable encouraged restaurants and drivers who started providing food delivery services during the COVID-19 pandemic to touch base with their insurance companies and make sure they have the coverage they need to continue providing that service.

“Many restaurants and drivers that began pickup and delivery service during the public health emergency may have been covered only on a temporary basis,” Afable said. “As many businesses start reopening to the public or planning to do so, now is a good time for those folks to reach out to their insurers.”

Afable said restaurants should make sure they have the coverage they need to continue providing those new delivery options to their customers, including whether delivery drivers who were covered by personal auto insurance policies during the pandemic are still covered.
