Business owner sues insurance companies for denial on claims for the losses caused by COVID-19

A small business owner in Columbus is battling a legal fight with an insurance company that denied his claims for losses when COVID-19 restriction forced him to close. Like other non-essential businesses, Craft and Vinyl in Grandview got closed in March due to COVID-19 closures aimed at preventing the spread of the disease. The owner of the brewpub and record store Troy Stacy filed an insurance claim with the hope of recovering some losses. Even his employees had to file unemployment claims. Stacy says that his insurance company, Cincinnati Insurance, denied his claim. He is one of the small business owners who are filing lawsuits on insurance companies for their claims to help them recover. "I was shocked that they would even contemplate denying the claim. Because it's there in black and white," Troy Stacy said. The lawsuit filed by him for the claim from the company states that the insurance company "refused to pay … for losses suffered due to COVID-19." Many insurances don't cover losses caused by viruses, but according to Stacy's lawsuit, "Cincinnati (insurance) did not exclude or limit coverage from losses from the spread of viruses." Across the country, many states, including Ohio, have introduced bills saying that all the insurance companies to pay for claims related to COVID-19, even if the policies exclude losses due to viruses.

Gov. DeWine said in his press meet, "I could probably double – maybe even triple – testing in Ohio virtually overnight if the FDA would prioritize companies that are putting a slightly different formula together for the extraction reagent kit. We have a worldwide shortage of some of the materials that go into this. We need help. If anybody in the FDA is watching, this would really take our capacity up literally, Chuck, overnight. That's what we need in Ohio."

Vice President Mike Pence, the leader of the White House coronavirus task force also came on "Meet the Press" on Sunday and said that 150,000 tests are being done across the US every day. "If states around the country will activate all of the laboratories that are available in their states, we could more than double that overnight."
