I was going to use the COVID epidemic in which we utilized our Disaster plans and SOPs as part of our recovery and planning execution for most of 2020 as evidence we performed this exercise in 2020. Our QMS requires we do this test annually. Is that a valid thought?

Howdy...
See here for a start...Testing cloud-based backups

Consider what makes sense to do annually...and perhaps update your own requirements...
Testing the most important parts annually makes sense...but what should that "Test" look like. How thorough?
It's cost/benefit...so think through both sides of that...
JMO.

A number of folks (my wife included) had to go to the office in order to restart after a windows or network update. What if the office wasn't physically there anymore? What would she do then? Remote desktop doesn't work if the host computer is (off, requires restart, burned up, underwater, stolen, etc.).

Hello.

Test the critical parts of the business (i.e., processes and activities) against the identified significant threats to the organization. The frequency depends on the process being tested, the scenario, the resources required, requirements from contractual, legal or regulatory entities. Tests should add value and confidence through out the supply chain.
