Shelter Insurance® Response to the Coronavirus

03/13/2020

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Shelter Insurance® employees’ health and safety is of the utmost importance. It is also our civic duty to take steps to help keep our communities safe. Shelter is implementing new policies and procedures in response to the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. As of March 13, 2020, Shelter is encouraging employees who have the ability to work from home to do so. This means the Home Office and Branch locations will be operating with significantly fewer employees on site. At this time there are no confirmed COVID-19 cases of employees at any of our locations.

In addition, we have taken the following steps, among others, to protect our employees, agents and customers:

  • Non-essential business travel remains suspended. Employees are encouraged to use precaution for any personal travel as well.
  • In-person meetings of five or more individuals are suspended; employees should use virtual meetings instead.
  • Visits to Shelter Offices from outside vendors remain suspended.
  • We will continue our enhanced cleaning and disinfectant applications of our worksites.

Shelter is continuing to work toward accommodating employees to ensure their safety and wellbeing.

Throughout this situation, Shelter remains steadfastly committed to serving our customers' needs and keeping our business running as usual. We greatly appreciate the support of our customers, employees and agents, and the communities in which we live and work.
