Governor Issues Order Allowing Remote Notary and Witness (04/09/2020)

Gov. Bill Lee today issued Executive Order No. 26 suspending current law to facilitate remote notarization and witnessing of documents. The Executive Order temporarily suspends all statutes requiring a physical presence for a notary public and witness(es), under certain conditions such as real-time audio and visual communication including Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, etc., among others. With COVID-19 impacting more and more people, many have prioritized setting up wills and healthcare directives. Gov. Lee’s executive order will allow the execution of wills and other legal documents without the in-person contact that risks exposure to COVID-19.
