I recently read a post from a writer who didn’t include Covid into her 2020 story (she wrote it before all of this) and she heard about it from readers. I think if you go out of your way to mention that your book takes place in 2020, that’s something you have to think about. A short line in the description of the book and in the book itself might have been beneficial in that instance.
As for me, I’m firmly in the “take me away from all of this” camp. I don’t want to hear about it while I’m living it. But I might not be your target audience, either. 😉
