Gov. Tate Reeves yesterday issued Executive Order 1549 lifting the mask mandate in Mississippi and increasing the capacity of all businesses and facilities in the state to 100 percent as of March 3. EO 1549 remains effective through March 31, 2021.
EO 1467, which temporarily authorizes Mississippi notaries to use both “remote ink-signed notarization” (RIN) and “remote online notarization” (RON) for the duration of this emergency is unaffected.
Please be aware that we have reviewed the Governor’s order carefully and it does not impact the emergency use of RIN or RON by Mississippi notaries in Mississippi under EO 1467. Authorization to use RIN/RON will continue to be permitted until the Governor lifts the state of emergency.
