WI Governor Orders Insurers to Assist Restaurants Offering Delivery During COVID-19 Health Crisis

March 23, 2020

Today, at the direction of Gov. Tony Evers, the Insurance Commissioner’s office has ordered insurers operating in WI to assist restaurants who have begun offering delivery service to customers during the COVID-19 health crisis.

Insurers must cover delivery services for restaurants on personal auto insurance policies and must offer coverage for hired drivers and non-owned automobiles as a rider on a restaurant’s general liability insurance if it is requested-both at no extra cost to the policyholder.

The order will stay in effect until the public health emergency order is lifted, in whole or in part, to permit restaurants to resume normal operations.
