When interviewing for a job, is it in my benefit to say I was laid off because of COVID or should I pretend as if I’m still employed?

I’m about to be a second year and have a core utilization of 75% (adjusted 85%). Is this really low? Is it something I could potentially get fired for? No bad reviews, and the low utilization was due
To the so called leadership in Deloitte USI you didnt handed out any hikes in 2020 despite good revenue and business. In contrast to that there were firms in India who were giving out flat basic hikes and all to their employees despite the pandenic. Then you fired ppl in July 2020. And all because of that now you are seeing an "historic" attrition and the laughable attempt to retain ppl. Hope you all grow a spine and learn something out of this fiasco.
Something positive! If you have been recently laid off and are looking for some leads, drop a note with what you’re looking for and let’s see if we can help each other out!

If anyone has done this, I would love some recommendations of cities/attractions to see that time of year. Or, if you have any recommendations at all it would be appreciated.
