On April 7, 2020 Governor Cuomo addressed the issue of how to sign Wills and other documents while we are all in isolation, since Wills require at least two witnesses be present. With the issuance of yesterday’s Executive Order, virtual witnessing and virtual notarization are both permissible, making it possible for Wills, health care proxies, trusts, powers of attorney and other documents to be signed even though witnesses and/or a Notary are not physically present. These measures are applicable through May 7, 2020, but may be extended if New York remains in quarantine past this date. This Alert summarizes the conditions for virtual signings. The Alert can be found here.
