This is an abridged version of the update:

“Please find important COVID updates below. 

In line with California’s reopening plan, CPS HR is following the state of California guidance for reopening; we are preparing to make the following changes:

  1. Physical distancing requirements and capacity limits are being eliminated.  Our regular seating requirements (2 per 6-ft or 3 per 8-ft table) will resume.
  2. The health and safety attestation is being eliminated, candidates will no longer be required to affirm they meet health requirements.  Proctors will no longer read the health script or verify with candidates that they meet the health requirements.
  3. Following the California guidance for face coverings (ca.gov)masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals; however, we must follow all local and facility guidelines as some test sites may still require them.  Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are asked to continue to wear face coverings.  We are not requiring any evidence of vaccination status; staff is not to ask for support or evidence of vaccination status.  Any individual who wishes to continue to wear a mask will be allowed to do so.

These changes are in effect now; however, it may take some time for implementation across sites.  Please remember to defer to local policies and enforce them as the site requires.”

What does this mean for Renewing Notaries and Notary Candidates?


If you have been trying to get into a notary exam in the last year you know it has been hard. Because of the changes of venue and restrictions to the number of people testing at a time. With those restrictions lifting and other venues opening up, especially colleges, it should be much easier to register for or walk into an exam.
