Have you discussed this with them? Frankly, I find most of these defensible. It's unrealistic to say one must dogmatically adhere to a strict set of principals at all times to be considered an anarchist. I didn't take any monastic vows and I doubt they did either.

As for your first two points, when COVID first started, it caused a great deal of panic and insufficient information. In times of crisis sometimes people just want to help and do so without thinking about the broader implications of their actions. With things like a pandemic a authoritarian statist response seems much easier and more effective because face to face horizontal organizing will spread the disease. Of course with greater scrutiny this view does not hold water, but I don't think one can be blamed for falling victim to this mode of thinking.
