California Shelter in Place Order

As of midnight 3/20/20, all of California is under a shelter in place order. Only essential businesses (and those that work for them) are allowed to continue to conduct business during this shelter in place order. Per guidelines from the California Secretary of State, a notary (unless as an employee of an essential business) cannot perform notary signings on their own or can be charged with the misdemeanor and it’s $1500 penalty.
As such, as hard as it is for me to financially do so, I will be suspending any notary appointments until the order is lifted. Thank you all for your business, I hope we can see each other soon!
