Lloyd’s of London has confirmed the reopening of its underwriting room and corporation offices on May 17.
The specialist re/insurance marketplace plans to apply a class of business rota during the week and will confirm further details closer to the date.
Looking further ahead, there will be additional action over further relaxing restrictions and increasing footfall in line with the expected updated government guidance on 21 June.
This will include the process of removing Perspex screens which had been installed throughout the underwriting floors.
The organisation will also be opening its virtual room, which was launched in September, to all classes of business.
The concept of the room was to add online elements that allow brokers and underwriters to connect in a similar way to the physical 1 Lime Street location in London.
Lloyd’s are also preparing to add additional features, including Meet Now / Meet Later, which will enable calendar integration between the virtual room and users’ own calendars.
Meanwhile, face coverings remain mandatory in all public areas of the building including the reception, lift lobbies and lifts, bathrooms, the coffee shop and when walking around the underwriting room. These can be removed when at the box or in meetings.
