Sure they can-
Businesses are struggling financially, and if they need to fire people to save money, they will make that decision rather easily! Also, due to limited hours, a lot of industries just can't feasibly afford to pay all their workers, there will be layoffs due to lack of shifts and positions, because of the virus.
The company I worked with, had to lay off a lot of people, due to the fact there just wasn't the hours and positions available due to restrictions and amount of people permitted indoors. I was one of those people who got laid off, luckily for me, I have senoirty and as a result I was able to be transferred to a different building but with reduced hours.
Welcome to reality.

Depends on the situation and the terms of your job. Many businesses are having to downsize or close because of the lockdowns. But a lay off is different from a firing.
