Coronavirus Update - 15/06/2021
Having supported many NODA members throughout the lockdown period, we are aware that societies are now looking to the future and starting to plan for post-lockdown activity.
We know societies are eager to return to the rehearsal rooms and get productions onto the stage, but before starting rehearsals it is important to maintain your insurance package.
Before COVID-19, by far the largest number of claims costs related to liability, normally involving injury to other members, or third parties. A high proportion of claims happen during rehearsals or meetings, not just during the production. It is therefore important that insurance remains in place.
As standard, NODA Insurance comes with £5,000 for scenery, costumes, props and other equipment. Many societies select higher levels, based on specific needs. If your society continues to own (or be responsible for) such property, keeping insurance in force ensures it is protected, especially during these times of inactivity.
Although going forward, the abandonment cover won’t include abandonment due to diseases such as COVID-19, it continues to provide cover for many other reasons. As you do start to incur costs in preparation for productions in 2021, having the insurance in place will ensure that you are protected if you need to cancel shows for reasons beyond your control.
For those societies that have the additional Committee Insurance product, it is important to maintain continuity of cover. Any “gap in cover” could result in claims not being paid for disputes such as libel, slander, discrimination or breach of copyright.
