B.F. Saul's Coronavirus Safeguards
In light of rising concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know what steps B. F. Saul Insurance has taken to ensure there is no interruption to our activities on behalf of our clients.
We have operational systems and business continuity plans in place (including capabilities for employees to work remotely with secure access to servers) and expect to continue to function with minimal, if any, disruption. Our management team and Claims Advocacy team continues to work closely with our global insurance company partners.
We are following national Center for Disease Control (CDC) and local public health advice in relation to Coronavirus. Consistent with the CDC’s preventative guidance, if our employees are feeling ill or caring for others who are, or could be ill, we will instruct them to stay home and seek medical attention. We have established policies and procedures to deal with working remotely and any business disruption should the situation change, in order to safeguard our employees and to minimize the risk to those with whom we do business.
Based on developments across the country and internationally, we have canceled all international business travel, and for the time being, we are limiting non-critical business travel. As an alternative to face-to-face meetings, we are conducting video conference or phone calls, when appropriate.
We are implementing these measures out of an abundance of caution. As you know, many organizations, including many of our peer firms, are taking similar measures. All decisions are being made to protect our colleagues and our clients, and to do our part to reasonably contribute to containing the spread of the virus.
We believe we have a responsibility to do all we can to minimize the risk to those with whom we do business and protect the community while also maintaining our standards of high-quality service and communication.
If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you for your patience and continued support.
