Letter of Recommendation Advice

I am currently applying to MD/DO programs. Some of the DO programs that I want to apply to require a letter of recommendation from a DO. I graduated May 2020 and am taking a gap year. I was planning to shadow a DO during my gap year but because of covid, I no longer can. My only option now would be to try emailing DOs and ask them to meet virtually and talk to them about their career and possibly ask them then. Would that be okay to do? Any advice?
