Abstract
COVID-19 is quickly becoming the leading cause of death in the United States. As of today, Indiana has over 37,000 cases of COVID-19 and over 2,100 deaths. That is why articulating your wishes regarding end-of-life health care, is more important than ever. It has been suggested that a video may be adequate if one does not have an advance directive. Such informal advance directives do provide information about your wishes, but they are not legally binding. As health care lawyers, we urge readers to create legally binding documents now, which is not as arduous as one may believe.
