From the FAQ:

Is a certificate of service still required?
Under F.R.Civ.P. 5(d), a certificate of service is required. However, per the sample found in the link under Section II.D.3. of our Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual, the Certificate should state if service was electronic or paper and, if paper, what method was used. Part II, Section D of the Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual.


Certificate of Service

A certificate of service is required when a party electronically files a document. The certificate must state the manner in which service or notice was accomplished on each party and may be signed as "s/name" by a paralegal, secretary or other authorized assistant who
made the service. A digital signature is also allowed.

Sample Certificate of Service.

Any document that is not filed electronically (i.e., sealed) must be served as a paper copy.
A party who is not a registered participant of ECF is entitled to service of a paper copy of any electronically filed document. The filing party must serve the non-registered party with the document according to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

A non-registered filing party who files document(s) with the Clerk's Office for scanning and entry to ECF must serve paper copies on all non-registered parties to the case. There will be some delay in the scanning, electronic filing and subsequent electronic noticing to
registered users. If time is an issue, non-registered filers should consider paper service of the document(s) to all parties.
