Frequently Asked Questions

Should I close my business?

If you’re wondering how your business should respond to the coronavirus, and specifically whether or not you should close, there are a number of factors to consider. Each business will have to make different decisions based on the type of operation, number of employees, access to capital, and ability to operate in a different environment. There is no one answer, but Gentry Locke can help you navigate these questions and make the best decision for you, your employees, and your customers.

What should I tell my employees?

If you have questions, so do your employees. They are wondering if it is safe to come to work, if they will still have a job when you re-open, or whether they will get paid on time. Exactly what you should tell your employees will depend a lot on your business, but Gentry Locke can assist you seeking to provide your employees with clear and helpful guidance.

Will insurance cover this?

Your insurance policy likely includes some provisions for natural disasters, but whether or not you have coverage for the effects of coronavirus will be very specific to your policy. Gentry Locke’s knowledgeable insurance attorneys will help you answer important questions about claims related to coronavirus.

Can I get sued if someone gets sick at my office?
