As far as freelance work...that'll be tough. Free lance web design is about the easiest thing there is, but it's tough to establish a client base (or even get people to want to pay for a website right now).
I read an article, businesses which are online-only may actually boom although in-person businesses will of course suffer.

To be honest, I was shortlisted for a software developer job and heard yesterday that the vacancy was taken down as they couldn't handle new recruits due to the situation.
