I got this from this website which mentions about Do's and Don'ts during eclipses:
Any food which is cooked on fire that day and has been consumed like,roti, chapatti, rice, sambar/dal, curry etc should be thrown away and not kept in the fridge.
Uncooked raw items to be used daily/regularly should be protected with darba grass blades.
Men who have had their upanayan sanskar can do Gayatri Japa. Each
Gayatri you chant will give you merits or phal of 1 crore Gayatri
So, this website says as per Dharma Sastras it is okay to chant Gayathri Hymn.
