California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order Thursday allowing for marriage licenses to be obtained through videoconferencing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Couples are only eligible for this service as long as both adults are present on the call, located within California and can present identification. Those who wish to have a full ceremony can do so with one witness on the call as well, according to the order. Licenses will then be emailed to recipients.

The online option will be available until June 29.
