Can a child be blessed or baptized if not attending home ward?

My daughter and son-in-law moved into a new ward last fall and after a few months decided that they wouldn't go back due to some things the bishop and other members had done/said. They decided to go back to their previous ward where they felt at home. They're already struggling with some church policy issues and I think it's better that they go to a ward they feel comfortable in vs. just going completely inactive. Under these circumstances, will their newborn daughter be allowed to be given a name and blessing (could this be done at home with the current pandemic) or be baptized when she's old enough if they're not attending their home ward? I understand they won't be able to have official callings while attending their previous ward which is a shame because they're both very talented people and the ward they're now attending is quite small.
