Upcoming Webinar | Business Insurance and COVID-19

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Business owners have faced a number of unprecedented challenges since the coronavirus outbreak. As businesses begin the reopening process, one of the most pressing challenges is ensuring that employees and customers are as protected as possible.

There are many precautions a business can take to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, the disease spread by the coronavirus. Masks, frequent hand washing, disinfecting surfaces and maintaining proper social distancing are a few examples.

But companies face more than just health risks. Business insurance helps protect a company against risks to its financial assets and property. On May 15, Ellie Platt, president and principal agent of Platt Insurance, will join Jeff Leo Herrmann, CEO of The Youngstown Publishing Co., in presenting a free webinar about business insurance coverage and COVID-19. 

The webinar will cover topics including business interruption and financial losses, coverage to consider when employees are working from home and ways to minimize the risk of legal liability should someone contract the virus at your place of business. Guest presenter Attorney Lucas Blower from Brouse McDowell will also weigh in on these issues from a legal perspective.
