I don't think it's "epidemic", but mentioning Covid at all that does it. I did see one short story that mentioned it in the blurb, but it's been two or three weeks so it may have been removed. I think if you're clear that the epidemic is not related to the current virus, you'd be fine.
I haven't seen any complaints lately, but it seems that nonfiction about the virus is still being blocked.
