Analysis:
On April 15, 2020, the Governor issued his Eleventh Modification of the Declaration of a State of Emergency, temporarily authorizing Delaware attorneys who have the power to perform notarial acts under 29 Del. C. 4323(a)(3), to perform video-conference notarizations. As the pandemic wears on, it became expedient and necessary to extend the expiration of this temporary authorization to allow the public more time to obtain notarial services in a safe and healthy manner.
