Having estate planning documents notarized is more difficult when you can't go to your lawyer's office personally, but it can be done. Notaries have been designated as an essential business (at least while notarizing essential documents), so some notary offices are still open, such as at UPS stores. Also, California law doesn't allow California notaries to do remote online notarization (RON), but many states now allow it. Some of those allow it only for residents of their states, but others, such as Florida, allow notaries to notarize documents for people physically located anywhere. The National Notary Association keeps current with the status of RON in the various states.
