Experts say during times of uncertainty, it's best to make sure your financial health and future remain strong.

You don't even necessarily need to hire someone for simple changes.

KATC spoke with attorney Thomas Long, who explained how important it is to have a last will and testament during times such as these.

"Louisiana only allows two forms of wills. If you don't have time to meet with an attorney or notary to draft one, you can always hand-write a will. It just has to be completely in your hand, signed, and dated. You can write a completely valid will under those emergency circumstances," Long explained.
