Starting a contract DURING a Force Majeure Event
If I am letting a new contract with a vendor and FM is currently in effect how can we guard against either party claiming FM and suspending performance at any time? Most agree that Coronavirus is a Force Majeure Event. In my contracts "Pandemic" is listed. I don't want to exclude pandemic as a cause because what if half of my healthy colleagues go sick, or my vendor who is today, due to the pandemic, working at 50% decides to work at 30% and I'm in the 20% of their capacity (these are just examples, not specific risks I have identified).
