Viewers were able to submit questions via Facebook during a live stream Friday at 3 p.m.

In terms of the stock market and investing during the current pandemic, Orman suggests holding onto your stocks during this time.

For those with retirement savings, Orman suggests keeping money in savings if you have more than five years until you need it.

Regarding stimulus money from the federal government, those who've filed their 2018 or 2019 taxes and received refunds via direct deposit should've already received payments.

Orman suggests checking your status on the IRS website via the 'Get my Payment' feature.
