Auto insurers loosen restrictions on delivery drivers during coronavirus pandemic

As a result, insurance companies are loosening restrictions on these delivery drivers. Starting this week and throughout the COVID-19 state of emergency, Allstate Corp. (NYSE: ALL) will automatically cover customers who use their personal vehicles to deliver food, medicine and other goods for commercial purposes.
