Buchalter COVID-19 Client Alert: Stop the Clock: Relief from Your Insurer Claiming a Notice Time Bar During the Pandemic
Buchalter, July 2021

A dangerous trap for an unwary insured looking for insurance coverage can be a notice provision. To trigger certain liability insurance policies, the insurer may require that a “claim” be both made against an insured and that the insured then report such claim to its insurer during the time the single insurance policy is in effect. This is what is known as a “claims-made-and-reported” policy. While this requirement may not be difficult for an insured in simple situations, like when a lawsuit is filed and the insured knows to quickly notify its insurer of the lawsuit and request coverage...

Buchalter, June 2021

On June 7, 2021, the Department of Managed Health Care (“DMHC”) issued an All Plan Letter (APL-21-016) to the health care service plans it regulates, announcing that health care service plans must continue to cover certain COVID-19 testing for their enrollees beyond the now-expired DMHC’s emergency regulation[1] (“Emergency Regulation”).

Buchalter COVID-19 Alert: California is Reopening, Will Commercial Evictions Remain on Hold?
Buchalter, May 2021

In early April as the statewide vaccination rate began to rise and major population centers across California began to see significant decreases in positive COVID cases and hospitalization rates, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the State plans to reopen in full on June 15, 2021. As of the date of this Alert, California has one of the lowest number of COVID cases per 100,000 people and the fourth lowest number of COVID hospitalizations in the United States. Due to these strong metrics, Governor Newsom and politicians argue that the time has come for California to lift restrictions on occupancy in stores and other public gathering spots in a push to return the State to normalcy...

Buchalter, May 2021

The Cal/OSHA Standards Board is scheduled to meet on May 20, 2021 to review proposed revisions to the Emergency Temporary Standards (“ETS”) on COVID-19 Safety in the workplace that were originally adopted in November, 2020.  The rules are expected to be readopted with the revisions and sent on to the Office of Administrative Law for an abbreviated five-day public notice and comment period as an emergency action before taking effect.  Although California has announced the intent to fully re-open businesses on June 15 due to the improvements in COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations, businesses will continue to be required to comply with measures such as the ETS
