Not great for shows with huge casts generally, but really not great for shows with huge casts that feature large battle scenes and/or many people gathered in close quarters. (Think Vikings or The Walking Dead.) At least Lynch probably wouldn't have to deal with too much stuff like that in whatever it is he seems to be planning.
This pandemic thing is so pervasive and long-lasting that it will eventually make sense for characters on shows set in the present to sometimes wear masks and social distance.
There are also other sorts of workarounds...
