5. Standard policies might now cover COVID-19-created or -related issues.

But they still don’t protect you if you’re too afraid to travel, said Sivley of Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection. “I’m not aware of any U.S. travel insurance provider covering for trip cancellation due to fear of COVID-19, unless the traveler had purchased cancel-for-any-reason coverage,” he said.
