COVID-19 is treated the same as any other sickness for purposes of all coverages that are triggered by a sickness or that can reimburse losses resulting from a sickness – including deaths caused by sickness.
The same limitation and exclusions that apply to all claims also apply to claims related to COVID-19, including the Exclusion for Pre-existing Conditions
