COVID-19 resources and information

These are unprecedented and uncertain times. The coronavirus pandemic has interrupted our everyday lives and brought routine activities to a standstill.

Many states are taking action by issuing state-specific emergency orders advising their residents on dealing with the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

Our top priority remains taking precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees, their families, and our trading partners and communities—while continuing to serve our clients and policyholders.

Markel has activated business continuity plans across all of our global operations. These plans are to further ensure our ability to serve our stakeholders’ needs. In addition, we continue to monitor and follow the guidance of health authorities and government officials globally, regionally, and locally.

News on COVID-19 changes with great frequency, and it may be hard to keep up while focusing on protecting your loved ones. Here are some links that may prove helpful:
