Dawn of the Dead (2004) 15 years after the outbreak...

Maps of the Outbreak in the continental United States

Hour 3 (May 7, 2004)

Hour 10 (May 8, 2004)

Hour 15 (May 8, 2004)

Still no infections at Delaware and Rhode Island. Major cities are hotbeds of cases.
Delaware and Rhode Island finally succumb to the virus. They were the last two states to report no infection for 26 hours. The entire continental United States has fallen to the virus. Only Alaska and Hawaii plus some territories remain infection free.

Stuck on a nuke sub with zombies?

That's nightmare fuel jackpot.

I guess any boats out at sea would try to stay away from shore as long as possible.

I doubt any crews were able to do anything like the crew of the Chinese missile sub in WWZ.

Would any of the ballistic missile subs be used to launch nukes? And if so, would they be at a hot zones or targets of opportunity?

Nuclear subs would launch theirs at cities if the EAM was given. So far, there was no mention of the usage of nuclear weapons in the U.S. The only usage of nuclear weapons was the destruction of Hong Kong and Shanghai but no-one knows if it were the Chinese or the Russians who did it.
 
A crew member getting infected on a ship is bad enough, on a sub its 10 times worse. Any ship trying to escape with whatever crew it can scrape up will have a good chance of taking on someone being infected, and you know the crew will want to bring along any family they have. The medical staff needs to watch everyone until it's sure no one is infected.

People always forget American Samoa, it is the only place not hit by the Spanish Flu too
Additionally, the only U.S. territory not even touched by the COVID-19 pandemic. It's isolation is both a blessing and a curse. Being isolated in the vast reaches of the South Pacific means that it would be hard for refugees to reach there however their isolation means they have to look for alternative food sources since they mostly export from Australia and mainland U.S.
 
All you need is one bitten refugee...
This reminds me in OTL, when one case of suspected COVID-19 hit American Samoa, the territory was thrown into panic since they didn't have the facilities to test for it. They had to ship the sample to Hawaii which unfortunately didn't have the labs so it had to go all the way to Atlanta. They had to wait two weeks for the result to come out.

So if one bitten refugee manages to reach American Samoa, no one is going to help the territory.
