Yes, I read about yeast production being “out of season” so producers were caught flat-footed with the sudden upswing in global demand for yeast, especially bread yeast. Here in southern California, it is very difficult to find bread yeast in any stores. We have 5 sachets of bread yeast (don’t tell anybody). I have gotten creative, using wine yeast purchased back in 2016 to make pizza dough. It works well.
