Question Is cutting in lockdown a bad idea?

I was thinking of going on a cut get a little leaner before the gyms reopen whenever that will be so I can go into a “lean bulk” when they’re open however is it risky to cut atm seeing as I have 0 equipment apart from a rucksack and a band, will I lose more muscle mass with the lack of equipment?
